P. G. Wodehouse
When the absentminded Earl of Emsworth pockets the prize piece of Mr. J. Preston Peters’ collection of scarabs, he sets in motion an adventure that only the wonderful world of Blandings Castle could house. Mr. Peters offers a lucrative reward to Mr. Ashe Marson to retrieve the scarab. Unbeknownst to him, his daughter Aline has hired Joan Valentine to do the same. Also at Blandings is George Emerson, who wants to marry Aline. But Aline is engaged to Lord Emsworth’s son, the Honorable Freddie Threepwood, who fears that Joan is going to sue him for breach of promise.
“Wanted—Young Man of Good Appearance, who is rough and reckless, to undertake delicate and dangerous enterprise.”
In all of this, of course, no one can take a step without tripping over Lord Emsworth’s secretary, the Efficient Baxter.
Sir Pelham Grenville (P. G.) Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English author and playwright and one of the premier humorists of the twentieth century. His inimitable prose, in the words of Evelyn Waugh, “has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Wodehouse’s hundreds of written works include the masterful Jeeves & Wooster and Blandings Castle stories.
