9780060972844: Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves: A Novel

P. G. Wodehouse's complete Jeeves and Wooster novel read by Jonathan Cecil. Bertie Wooster looks pretty stylish in his new Tyrolean hat - or so he thinks. Others, notably Jeeves, disagree. But when Bertie embarks on an errand of mercy to Totleigh Towers, things get quickly out of control and he's going to need all the help Jeeves can provide. There are good eggs present, such as Gussie Fink-Nottle and the Rev. 'Stinker' Pinker. But there also is Sir Watkyn Bassett JP, enemy of all the Woosters hold dear, to say nothing of his daughter Madeline and Roderick Spode, now raised to the peerage. And Major Brabazon Plank, the peppery explorer, who wants to lay Bertie out cold. Thank goodness for the intervention of Chief Inspector Witherspoon of Scotland Yard. But is this gentleman all he seems...? Jonathan Cecil (picture above) has toured in "The Incomparable Max", "Twelfth Night" and "An Ideal Husband", while among his considerable TV and film appearances are "The Rector's Wife", "The Worst Week of My Life", "Midsomer Murders" and "Victoria & Albert".

Product Description:

When Jeeves's employer plays matchmaker, terrifying misunderstandings ensue, until the indomitable Jeeves saves the day. No wonder the British lost the war with the American colonies.

The feather-brained Bertie Wooster complicates his life by interceding with the predatory Madeline Bassett on behalf of his friend Gussie Fink-Nottle and finds himself entangled in terrifying misunderstandings. In the mounting storm clouds on the Wooster horizon there is but one ray of comfort: the presence of Jeeves, steadfast and reassuring. No cause has ever been lost while Jeeves was around, and in this uproarious novel the mastermind rises effortlessly to the occasion.

Product Description:

Bertie Wooster would rather run a mile in tight shoes than visit the rural nightmare known as Totleigh Towers. Inhabiting its confines is drippy Madeline, who believes that the stars are God's daisy chain. She's engaged to Bertie's old chum Gussie, but will happily settle for Bertie should things go amiss. So when the engagement does falter, Bertie must hope that Jeeves will forget their differences over a certain pink-feathered Alpine hat and once more come to his rescue...
