"I envy those who've never read [Wodehouse] before-the prospect of reams of unread Wodehouse stretching out in front of you is . . . something which is enticing to contemplate." -Tony BlairWelcome to Blandings Castle, home of the well-intentioned but often distracted Lord Emsworth-and there are quite a few distractions at this stately country house. Head gardener Angus McAllister has resigned before the Shrewsbury Agricultural Show, when Emsworth needs him most; Lady Constance, Emsworth's officious sister, has caged her daughter in the castle to keep her away from the persistent Beefy Bingham; and the Blandings pigman, Wellbeloved, has been sent to prison for drunken and disorderly conduct just days before Emsworth's adored sow can win first prize at the 87th Annual Shropshire Show. Through P.G. Wodehouse's expert wit, we witness Lord Emsworth trying to solve these predicaments and others, with the unexpected help (and hindrance) of a lively array of characters.
