Aunts Aren't Gentlemen | [P.G. Wodehouse]

Aunts Aren't Gentlemen

On doctor's orders, Bertie Wooster retires to sample the bucolic delights of Maiden Eggesford. But his idyll is rudely shattered by Aunt Dahlia who wants him to nobble a racehorse. Similar blots on Bertie's horizon come in the shape of Major Plank, the African explorer, Vanessa Cook, proud beauty and 'moulder of men', and Orlo Porter, who seems to have nothing else to do but to think of sundering Bertie's head from his body.

    Story
    "Pure Wodehouse"

    Its a good book, but very Wodehouse in that it repeats the same sort of stories as a lot of the other books. Nevertheless it's very funny and takes you back to the fairy tale England of Wodehouse.
