Synopsis: Long before there was Jeeves, P.G. Wodehouse wrote hilarious comic novels about upper-class British characters, including Ukridge, who never quite comes to grip with reality. Ukridge contacts his old friend, Jeremy Garnet (who has been trying to avoid him), with a smashing idea--to start a chicken farm. Just borrow some chickens, have them lay eggs, raise the chicks, and off you go. Things are going fine until Garnet sees a lovely young lady who is reading one of his novels. He is immediately smitten, and the complications begin. A terrific book from a master of British comedy. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
About the Author:
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre- and post-World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
Jonathan Cecil (1939-2011) was a vastly experienced actor, appearing at Shakespeare's Globe as well as in such West End productions as The Importance of Being Earnest, The Seagull, and The Bed before Yesterday. He toured in The Incomparable Max, Twelfth Night, and An Ideal Husband, while among his considerable television and film appearances were The Rector's Wife, Just William, Murder Most Horrid, and As You Like It.
