Inhaltsangabe: A Mulliner collection
In the bar-parlour of the Angler's Rest, Mr Mulliner tells his amazing tales, which hold his audience of drinkers (referred to only as Pints of Stout and Whiskies-and-Splash) in the palm of his expressive hand. Here you can discover what happened to The Man Who Gave Up Smoking, share a frisson when the butler delivers Something Squishy on a silver salver ('Your serpent, Sir,' said the voice of Simmons) - and experience the dreadful Unpleasantness at Bludleigh Court. Throughout the Mulliner clan remains resourcefully in command in the most outlandish situations, making for a vintage collection of hilarious Wodehouse.
"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" (John Humphrys)
"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" (Marian Keyes)
"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" (Lynne Truss)
"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" (Kate Mosse)
"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" (Susan Hill)
