A tangled foregathering of Bertie Wooster and his problem friends presages well for P.G.W. followers. Here and now Our Bertie is confronted with several missions: to keep good old Gussie Fink-Nottle (who loves newts) engaged - to the girl who will take Bertie as second choice; to get Stiffy, an eager hand for polite blackmail, married to Stinker (who is trying to make it from curate to vicar so the wedding bells will ring); to keep himself from being annihilated by Sir Watkyn or dismembered by Roderick Spode, lately Lord Sidcup; to keep a certain statuette from wandering too far afield from Sir W. It does not take too dim an "e." to see that it is Our Jeeves, emolliently assuaging, who keeps Our Bertie from being too uncomfortable on the horns of a.....and merges the victor over the affair of his employer's alpine hat with a pink feather....And what a fine, feathered, fettle it turns out to be.... Larky, this. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - P. G. Wodehouse
The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.
