Bertie Wooster’s blissful bachelorhood is in dire peril: unless he can patch things up between Gussie Fink-Nottle and the horrifying Madeline Bassett, Bertie must wed the heiress of Totleigh Towers. Disaster looms as Gussie rebels against his new vegetarian diet, and a furtive supply of meat pies from a pretty cook lead him further astray. Only Jeeves can save Bertie from entombment at Totleigh, but Jeeves so strongly disapproves of his young master’s new hat that Bertie may have to rely on his own wits for once.

Steadfast, reassuring Jeeves is back, and in this uproarious novel his superior mind rises effortlessly to the occasion. "Everything is just mildly idiotic, and there is lots of purely physical comedy, and lots of conversation."--NewsweekFrom the Back Cover:
A Bertie and Jeeves classic, featuring an Alpine hat, a black amber statuette, and the dreaded Totleigh Towers.
In Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves, Bertie's newt-breeding friend Gussie Fink-Nottle must marry Madeline Bassett or Bertie will be obliged to take his place. Understandably, Bertie is aghast. It seems like certain suicide, but Jeeves must find a way to save his employer from the clutches of the drippy Madeline. If he fails, Bertie's bachelor days -- not to mention Jeeves's leisure time -- will be at an end.
