Russian translation

Political dynamite threatens to explode in Market Snodbury.

At Junior Ganymede, the top club for gentlemen's gentlemen, each member is instructed to write into a famous book the ghastly habits and foibles of their employers, as a warning, and possibly a deterrent, to those entering their employ. Unsurprisingly, the celebrated work contains numerous pages about the eccentricities of one Bertram Wooster. Imagine the horror if the book fell into the wrong hands...
