Description - The World of Blandings by P. G. Wodehouse
A Blandings Omnibus Impostors abound in the latter-day Eden that is Blandings Castle. In Something Fresh, the first Blandings novel, the impostors in question are Ashe Marson and Joan Valentine, two impecunious authors. Their brief- to steal back a scarab that Lord Emsworth has carelessly purloined from his future brother in-law and brought to Blandings. In Summer Lightning, it s the season for impostors when the Hon. Galahad Threepwood threatens to publish his sensational memoirs and Lord Emsworth s prize-winning sow, Empress of Blandings, is kidnapped. The course of true love does not flow smoothly in Heavy Weather, and Lord Emsworth worries about Sir Gregory Parsloe s possible designs on his favourite pig, resulting in all manner of disruptions.
