Publisher's Summary

In the bar-parlor of the Angler’s Rest, Mr. Mulliner tells his amazing tales, holding the assembled company of 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.

Avoid This One

I love Wodehouse but I guess even he could merely "phone it in" when he needed to. Perhaps there was a contractual obligation to crank a book out when the author didn't feel like writing one? I did not get past the first few chapters. Mulliner has all the Wodehousian language elements but no soul. Jonathan Cecil's excellent narration isn't enough to save it. Pass on by.

Jonathan Cecil & P.G. Wodehouse - Superb!

Nobody brings Wodehouse to life as Jonathan Cecil does. The subtle punches and not so subtle descriptions by Wodehouse are superbly expressed.
