9781585676583: Something Fresh (Collector's Wodehouse)

[Audiobook CD Library Edition in Vinyl case.]

[Read by Frederick Davidson]

Welcome to Blandings Castle, a place that is never itself without an imposter.

Wodehouse himself once noted that ''Blandings has impostors like other houses have mice.'' On this particular occasion there are two, both intent on a dangerous enterprise. Lord Emsworth's secretary, the Efficient Baxter, is on the alert and determined to discover what is afoot -- despite the distractions caused by the Honorable Freddie Threepwood's hapless affair of the heart.

Freddie is engaged to marry the daughter of a wealthy American who is a passionate collector of ancient Egyptian scarabs. When one goes missing, a thousand-pound reward is offered for its return and Blandings becomes a madhouse as friends turn rivals in the scramble to retrieve the object.

Product Description:

A swift-paced, wonderfully narrated Wodehouse classic

  When a scarab belonging to an American millionaire is absent-mindedly stolen by Lord Emsworth, young writers Ashe Marson and Joan Valentine are brought together in an attempt to retrieve it from Blandings Castle. Meanwhile, Freddie Threepwood worries some letters may surface and compromise his engagement to the millionaire's daughter. This novel is wonderfully brought to life by an avid fan of Wodehouse with a fanbase in his own right for his accomplished readings of the hilarious P. G. Wodehouse canon. Unabridged.

Product Description:

This is the first of the Blandings Castle novels, introducing Lord Emsworth, his family, his secretary - the Efficient Baxter - and the mandatory Wodehouse cast of butlers, aunts, younger sons, detectives, lovers and imposters. Take the 4.15 from Paddington Station to Shropshire and arrive in heaven.
