Russian translations

Bertie Wooster would rather run a mile in tight shoes than visit the rural nightmare known as Totleigh Towers.

Inhabiting its confines is drippy Madeline, who firmly believes that the stars are God's daisy chain. She is engaged to Bertie's old chum Gussie, but she'll happily settle for Bertie should things go amiss. So when the engagement does falter, Bertie must hope that Jeeves will forget their differences over a certain pink-feathered Alpine hat and once more come to his rescue...
