After seeing his friend Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge for the first time in years, Jeremy Garnet is dragged along on holiday to Ukridge's new chicken farm in Dorset. Hilarious situations abound with Garnet's troublesome courting of a girl living nearby and the struggles on the farm, which are worsened by Ukridge's bizarre business ideas and methods. This was Wodehouse's first novel published in the United States, and the only one to feature the recurring character Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge.

About the Author:

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, KBE, was a comic writer who enjoyed enormous popular success during a career of more than seventy years and continues to be widely read over 40 years after his death. Despite the political and social upheavals that occurred during his life, much of which was spent in France and the United States, Wodehouse's main canvas remained that of prewar English upper-class society, reflecting his birth, education, and youthful writing career. An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by more recent writers such as Douglas Adams, Salman Rushdie and Terry Pratchett. Sean O'Casey famously called him "English literature's performing flea", a description that Wodehouse used as the title of a collection of his letters to a friend, Bill Townend. Best known today for the Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels and short stories, Wodehouse was also a talented playwright and lyricist who was part author and writer of fifteen plays and of 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. He worked with Cole Porter on the musical Anything Goes (1934) and frequently collaborated with Jerome Kern and Guy Bolton. He wrote the lyrics for the hit song "Bill" in Kern's Show Boat (1927), wrote the lyrics for the Gershwin - Romberg musical Rosalie (1928), and collaborated with Rudolf Friml on a musical version of The Three Musketeers (1928).

From AudioFile:

A word to the wise: Please listen to this book at home, while walking or lazing about on the patio or veranda. Do not listen while operating motorized equipment because you'll laugh too hard and could cause an accident. This is the book that launched a career, and it delivers on its promise. Narrator Jonathan Cecil channels the author's wit and soul in a tour de force of comic interpretation. Cecil is bursting with characters large and small, male and female, pompous and clueless, and he reads with an all-encompassing energy that is both infectious and satisfying. His elastic British accent travels in many directions and is a joy to hear. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
