Blandings Castle and Elsewhere

Blandings Castle and Elsewhere

(Blandings Castle)


Dive into this collection of laugh-out-loud funny short stories from the perennial comic P. G. Wodehouse.

Meet Clarence, the absent-minded ninth Earl of Emsworth, whose beloved pig the Empress of Blandings is in the running for her first prize in the Fat Pigs Class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show. Revel in the delicious feud between Head Gardener McAllister and the terrifying Lady Constance, which can only be solved by a delightfully rebellious little girl from London. And skipping an ocean and a continent, indulge in unputdownable stories of excess from the monstrous Golden Age of Hollywood, specially selected by Wodehouse himself.

'P. G. Wodehouse is the funniest person that has ever written words' Greg James
'An incomparable and timeless genius' Kate Mosse
