On doctors orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Berties horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and molder of men, and Orlo Porter who seems to have nothing else to do but think of sundering Berties head from his body.

P. G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) was born in Surrey, educated in London, and spent much of his life in Southampton, Long Island, becoming an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books, twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.
Jonathan Cecil's considerable TV and film appearances include The Rector's Wife, Just William, Murder Most Horrid, and As You Like It.
"Could a P.G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse's comic novels, clearly has its finger on America's pulse....With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud." -Los Angeles Times
"All one can do is read [the Wodehouse books] is read them and laugh like an idiot. To assist you in this, the Overlook Press is publishing a set of clothbound collector's editions of the master's work. They're beautiful books, much welcome." -Bookforum
