A Wodehouse miscellany that takes us from Shropshire to Hollywood...

At Blandings Castle trouble, as is often the case, rears its bothersome head. Crooning Tenor Orlo Watkins has stolen Gertrude away from the Rev. Rupert Bingham. The Hon. Freddie Threepwood is meant to restore the sticky situation but he is more interested in getting his aunt to sample the delights of Donaldson Dog-Joy biscuits. Lord Emsworth is about to lose his butler Beach when he acquires a not-too-handsome beard, but there's even worse confusion when the Empress, Lord Emsworth's beloved pig, loses her appetite. Meanwhile, Mr Mulliner at the Angler's Rest has some intriguing tales to tell about the film industry.
