This 1938 novel is off to a rollicking start when Aunt Dahlia demands that Bertie Wooster help her dupe an antique dealer into selling her an 18th-century cow creamer. Dahlia trumps Bertie's objections by threatening to sever his standing invitation to her house for lunch, an unthinkable prospect given Bertie's devotion to the cooking of her chef, Anatole.

Not the best narration

Great classice Wodehouse but Nicolas Coster just misses the right sound. His voice is pleasant but he emphasizes the wrong words so the humor disappears, and he sounds a little elderly for young Bertram Wooster. I prefer the same stories, different voice.
