Jeeves in the offing

Jeeves is on holiday in Heme Bay, and while he’s away the world caves in on Bertie Wooster. For a start, he’s astonished to read in «The Times» of his engagement to the mercurial Bobbie Wickham. Then at Brinkley Court, his Aunt Dahlia’s establishment, he finds his awful former headmaster in attendance ready to award the prizes at Market Snodsbury Grammar School. And finally the Brinkley butler turns out, for reasons of his own, to be Bertie’s nemesis in disguise, the brain surgeon Sir Roderick Glossop. With all occasions informing against him, Bertie has to hightail it to Heme Bay to liberate Jeeves from his shrimping net. And after that, the fun really starts. Формат издания: 13 см х 19,5 см.

    Poor Wooster, always the scapegoat as usual. Lighthearted and old worldly as always.

    Lovely escapism.
    Ends like the proverbial brick wall.
