Description

Another laugh-aloud story of Blandings Castle, from one of the greatest humorists ever, P.G. Wodehouse. Read with masterly wit and style by highly-acclaimed British actor Martin Jarvis.

Clarence, the amiable dotty ninth Earl of Emsworth, dotes on his prize-winning pig, Empress of Blandings. His old roue brother, Galahad, fears that Clarence's rival, Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe, is planning to nobble the Empress to prevent her taking the County prize once again. Parsloe lives in equal fear of Gally publishing scandalous tales of their wild younger days in his memoirs. Lady Constance, Clarence's formidable sister, is determined to stop publication. The castle is soon overrun with manuscript thieves! Romance also pervades the balmy air: Clarence's feisty niece Millicent loves handsome but penniless Hugo; gorgeous chorus girl Sue adores vapid Ronnie Fish. Thus, with the additional excitement of pig-napping, private detection and public absurdity - all overseen by Beach, the mountainous butler - the scene is set. Will love find a way? Of course; but so will sublime comedy, in this dazzling work of genius.
