Book Description

EPISODE 6 IN A MAJOR BBC DRAMA STARRING TIMOTHY SPALL, DAVID WALLIAMS AND JENNIFER SAUNDERS



ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED AS GALAHAD AT BLANDINGS



With the arrival of sophisticated widow, Daphne, and her spoiled brat Huxley, Connie once again forces Clarence to look presentable.



However, when Daphne flirts with Clarence and takes an interest in his pig, Beach and Connie become suspicious of Daphne’s motives.



Freddie, though, has foresworn all involvement in love affairs – only to find an irresistible beauty, Monica, working in the pig-sty.



‘Sublime comic genius’


Ben Elton



‘You don't analyse such sunlit perfection, you just bask in its warmth and splendour.’


Stephen Fry



‘The funniest writer ever to put words to paper.’


Hugh Laurie



‘P.G. Wodehouse remains the greatest chronicler of a certain kind of Englishness, that no one else has ever captured quite so sharply, or with quite as much wit and affection.’


Julian Fellowes

More About the Author

The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

5.0 out of 5 stars The genuine article 19 Feb. 2013
By Mondoro TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I postponed writing a review of this (full-length) kindle book until the corresponding episode (No.6) was shown by the BBC (17th February 2013). Suffice it to say that the adaptation has little in common with the original (aka 'Galahad at Blandings'): one story line (Lord Emsworth, the husband-hungry Daphne and her appalling son) has been taken and substantially altered in the television version. Amusing in its own way, but not really authentic Wodehouse.

What we are offered here is the genuine article and providing the rest of the story: Lord Emsworth's slighlty disreputable brother Galahad, who fixes the various problems his absent minded brother unwittingly creates, an even more fearsome sister, Hermione, who also makes Clarence's life a misery, a variety of young people, whose travails are sorted out happily at the end of the book - not forgetting the Empress, spared from an ignominious fate. All told in Wodehouse's inimitable, and always witty prose. Unlike the other short stories linked to the TV series, this represents really good value.

A great read if you loved the recent TV series - some more characters to expand your Wodehouse family and the usual slapstick humour.
