Description - Aunts Aren't Gentlemen by P. G. Wodehouse
A Jeeves and Wooster novel Wooster withdraws to the village of Maiden Eggesford on doctor's orders to 'sleep the sleep of the just and lead the quiet Martini-less life'. Only the presence of the irrepressible Aunt Dahlia shatters the rustic peace as an 'imbroglio' develops - destined to be famous down the long years as the 'Maiden Eggesford Horror' or 'The Case Of The Cat Which Kept Popping Up When Least Expected'. For however generous or kind-hearted they may be, there is one thing that can be said of Aunts as a class: they are not Gentlemen.

Author Biography - P. G. Wodehouse
Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (always known as 'Plum') wrote more than ninety novels and some three hundred short stories over 73 years. He is widely recognised as the greatest 20th-century writer of humour in the English language. Perhaps best known for the escapades of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Wodehouse also created the world of Blandings Castle, home to Lord Emsworth and his cherished pig, the Empress of Blandings. His stories include gems concerning the irrepressible and disreputable Ukridge; Psmith, the elegant socialist; the ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred; and those related by Mr Mulliner, the charming raconteur of The Angler's Rest, and the Oldest Member at the Golf Club. In 1936 he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for 'having made an outstanding and lasting contribution to the happiness of the world'. He was made a Doctor of Letters by Oxford University in 1939 and in 1975, aged 93, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. He died shortly afterwards, on St Valentine's Day.
