'The funniest writer ever to put words to paper.' Hugh LaurieCocktail TimeAn Uncle Fred novelFrederick, Earl of Ickenham, remains young at heart. So it is for him the act of a moment to lean out of the Drones Club window with a catapult and ping the silk top-hat off his grumpy in-law, the distinguished barrister Sir Raymond Bastable. Unfortunately things don t end there.The sprightly earl finds that his action has inspired a scandalous bestseller and a film script but this is as nothing compared with the entangled fates of the couples that surround him and which only his fabled sweetness and light can unravel.Joy in the MorningA Jeeves and Wooster novelTrapped in rural Steeple Bumpleigh, a man less stalwart than Bertie Wooster would probably give way at the knees. For among those present were Florence Craye, to whom Bertie had once been engaged and her new fianc Stilton Cheesewright, who sees Bertie as a snake in the grass. And that biggest blot on the landscape, Edwin the Boy Scout, who is busy doing acts of kindness out of sheer malevolence.All Bertie s forebodings are fully justified. For in his efforts to oil the wheels of commerce, promote the course of true love and avoid the consequences of a vendetta, he becomes the prey of all and sundry. In fact only Jeeves can save him Summer LightningA Blandings novelThe Empress of Blandings, prize-winning pig and all-consuming passion of Clarence, Ninth Earl of Emsworth, has disappeared. Blandings Castle is in uproar and there are suspects a-plenty - from Galahad Threepwood (who is writing memoirs so scandalous they will rock the aristocracy to its foundations) to the Efficient Baxter, chilling former secretary to Lord Emsworth. Even Beach the Butler seems deeply embroiled. And what of Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe, Clarence s arch-rival, and his passion for prize-winning pigs?With the castle full of deceptions and impostors, will Galahad s memoirs ever see the light of day? And will the Empress be returned ?Meet Mr MullinerIn the Angler s Rest, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouse s greatest raconteurs. Mr Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behaviour of his far-flung family: In particular there s Wilfred, inventor of Raven Gypsy face-cream and Snow of the Mountain Lotion, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance. Its explosive effects on a shy young curate and then the higher clergy is gravely revealed. And there s his cousin James, the detective-story writer, who has inherited a cottage more haunted than anything in his own imagination. And stuttering George the crossword whizz. And Isadore Zinzinheimer, head of the Bigger, Better & Brighter Motion Picture Company. Tall tales all but among Wodehouse s best.

PG Wodehouse was born as Pelham Grenville Wodehouse on 15th October, 1881 in Guildford, south east England to distinguished parents who were visiting the UK from Hong Kong where his father was a judge. The Wodehouse family had aristocratic roots in their family home in Norfolk but PG was never to live in the county. Instead from the age of 3 he was returned from Hong Kong to be educated at different schools in the UK and until the age of 15 hardly saw his parents. He had a nanny, spent summers with various aunts and became close to one of his 3 brothers. There was still a void in his life which was filled by writing and resulted in his editing his college magazine at Dulwich College where he further flourished in music, theatre and sports. Although intending to follow his brother to Oxford University, his father's finance faltered so instead his father found him a position in what was to become HSBC bank. Whilst at the bank he recounted some of his experiences in a publication which started his life as a journalist and contributor to magazines that led to his making a name for himself in musical comedies resulting in the collaboration with Cole Porter in 1934 on Anything Goes, journalism and a writer of short stories. His wonderful characterisation of the English upper classes combined with his mastery of prose left a lasting legacy most notably in his series of the humorous and sometimes hilarious Jeeves and Wooster stories that are at the pinnacle of comic writing and continue to be widely read and enjoyed. PG Wodehouse spent much of his life in France and the US, mainly New York, where he died on 14th February 1975. Despite controversy over his possible Nazi sympathies he was awarded the KBE, albeit shortly before his death when Madam Tussaud's also had a waxwork made of him.
