Description

Clarence, ninth Earl of Emsworth, sank back in his chair looking like the good old man in a Victorian melodrama whose mortgage the villain had just foreclosed. He felt the absence of that gentle glow which customarily accompanied the departure of one of his sisters. Lord Emsworth needed Galahad. There are tricky corners to be rounded and assorted godsons, impostors, and pretty girls to be paired off. Fortunately, many years' membership of the Pelican Club means the Honourable Galahad Threepwood is able to keep cool, stiffen his upper lip, and always think a shade quicker than the next man.

      • bioText:

        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.

      • content: It would be easy to drive off the road while you whoop with laughter over this audiobook. From the first bon mot to the last cheerio, each syllable is a pearl before swine. Nigel Lambert performs admirably with different pitches and myriad accents. The dialogue makes you wonder just how many readers there really are. If you are a Wodehouse fan, this reading will elate you. If you have only seen Jeeves on the telly, have a go at this jolly presentation. B.H.B. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine
