What a very, very lucky person you are. Spread out before you are the finest and funniest words from the finest and funniest writer the past century ever knew.Stephen Fry

Aunts, engagements, misunderstandings and hangover cures, this delightful collection from the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishes (Julian Fellowes) brings together a bakers dozen of P. G. Wodehouses finest short stories.

In this beautiful edition we find Bertie Wooster and Jeeves embarking on foolhardy quests and inspired rescue missions. We discover Ukridge, the ever-optimistic animated blob of mustard, undeterred in his big broad outlook, no matter how bleak things look, while the Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred, continues enjoying life, quite oblivious to the embarrassment hes causing.

And, as snow falls on the links outside the Angler's Rest, Mr Mulliner, the Oldest Member at the Golf Club, settles in to recount tales of romance and ghosts, and keep the tide of intellectual-albeit rather one-sided-conversation flowing.
