In the Angler’s Rest, drinking hot scotch and lemon, sits one of Wodehouse’s greatest raconteurs. Mr Mulliner, his vivid imagination lubricated by Miss Postlethwaite the barmaid, has fabulous stories to tell of the extraordinary behaviour of his far-flung family...
One of them concerns Wilfred, who lights on the formula for Buck-U-Uppo, a tonic given to elephants to enable them to face tigers with the necessary nonchalance. Its explosive effects on a shy young curate and then the higher clergy is gravely revealed.
Any additional comments?
Chapter 8 is the cradle of all American Action movies, in which they select the best of the best for the mission, normally a retired so and so, in this case the hero is Clarence Mulliner.
i strongly recommend reading this book, and i strongly recommend the narrator Jonathan Cecil
