Description - Uncle Fred in the Springtime by P. G. Wodehouse
A Blandings novel Uncle Fred is one of the hottest earls that ever donned a coronet. Or as he crisply said, There are no limits, literally none, to what I can achieve in the springtime. Even so, his gifts are stretched to the limit when he is urged by Lord Emsworth to save his prize pig, the Empress of Blandings, from the enforced slimming cure of the haughty Duke of Dunstable. Pongo Twistleton knows his debonair but wild uncle shouldn t really be allowed at large especially when disguised as a brain surgeon. He fears the worst. And his fears are amply justified.

After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway.
