P. G. Wodehouse

Love Among the Chickens

No one writes farce like P.G. Wodehouse. Love Among the Chickens is the hilarious tale of one Londoner's attempt to survive the countryside.Jeremy Garnet has never particularly liked chickens, but his friend Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge is convinced that they are the route to certain fortune. Needing a bit of a break from London, Garnet is talked into accompanying Ukridge to his new poultry farm in Dorset. Unfortunately, when Ukridge is around things never seem to go according to plan, and with the additional complications of angry professors, threatening creditors, misbehaving chickens — oh, and true love to boot — Garnet's holiday in the country is looking less restful by the minute!
