Reviews

US Kirkus Review » That portly porker, the Empress of Blandings, is ready for her third win in the Fat Pigs Contest, but Lord Easworth's hopes shatter when he hears of Sir Gregory's fabulous entry, the Queen of Matchingham. Hon. Galahad Threepwood, never one to face a heart bowed down, is on the move to nobble the Queen, is counterplayed by a hard drinking pigman and threatened by several romances, all bustling at once. American heiress Penelope gets engaged to Orlo: Orlo's ex-fiancee has ringed Sir Gregory, while a lady detective rediscovers an old love. By the time the Empress is back in her own pen - everyone has gotten dis- and then re-engaged to someone else- you know Wodehouse-like. A macedoine of fruity ploys - this for the unregenerate followers. (Kirkus Reviews)
