9780099580690: Blandings

Now a major BBC drama starring Timothy Spall, David Walliams and Jennifer Saunders. Published to coincide with the star-filled BBC production of Blandings, this superb new anthology sees these celebrated stories together for the first time. Set in the delightfully dysfunctional mess of Blandings Castle these 6 gems follow the trials of poor Earl Emsworth and his beloved pig Empress as they clash with a panoply of friends and family, servants and spongers, bookies and hucksters. And all served up with great lashings of comedy from that rarest of geniuses: P.G. Wodehouse.

About the Author:

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. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies, and at one stage had five shows running simultaneously on Broadway. 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.

Review:

"Sublime comic genius" -- Ben Elton "You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour." -- Stephen Fry "The funniest writer ever to put words to paper." -- Hugh Laurie "For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day." -- Marian Keyes "P.G. Wodehouse wrote the best English comic novels of the century." -- Sebastian Faulks

Book Description Arrow. 1 Paperback(s), 2012. soft. Book Condition: New. The ivied walls of Blandings Castle glow sunnily in these six stories by the creator of Jeeves & Wooster—a selection very nearly duplicating the first series of the BBC comedy Blandings, starring Timothy Spall and Jennifer Saunders. But there are snakes in the countryside ready to nip Clarence, the absent-minded Ninth Earl of Emsworth, when he least expects it. For a start the Empress of Blandings, in the running for her first prize in the Fat Pigs Class at the Shropshire Agricultural Show, is off her feed. Then there is the ongoing feud over the moss path with Head Gardener McAllister—aided by Clarence's sister, the terrifying Lady Constance—and the draconian edicts of her meddling secretary Mr. Baxter. "Each time you read another Blandings story, the sublime nature of that world is such as to make you gasp."—Stephen Fry "P.G. Wodehouse remains the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness, that no one else has ever captured quite so sharply, or with quite as much wit and affection."—Julian Fellowes 379.
