This review is from: Pigs Have Wings: (Blandings Castle) (Paperback)
Pigs nearly always feature in the Blandings novels because Lord Emsworth is simply potty about his prize pig, the "Empress of Blandings". In this novel, his rivalry with his neighbour who is also in possession of a pig which he hopes will defeat the Empress in the next competition, reaches boiling point. At the centre of the novel we have a double stealing of pigs and the usual romantic entanglements. Anyway, this is simply delicious fun, a perfect tonic. Woken up by pain as I am, I find no better tonic than to tuck into a Wodehouse novel with its nonsence.
Thanks Fr Schall for reintroducing me to Wodehouse - it makes me wonder why I waited 20 years to return to him.
