This is a Jeeves and Wooster novel. At Deverill Hall, an idyllic
Tudor manor in the picture-perfect village of King's Deverill,
impostors are in the air. The prime example is man-about-town
Bertie Wooster, doing a good turn to Gussie Fink-Nottle by
impersonating him while he enjoys fourteen days away from society
after being caught taking an unscheduled dip in the fountains of
Bertie is of course one of nature's gentlemen, but the stakes
are high: if all is revealed, there's a danger that
Gussie's simpering fiancee Madeline may turn her wide eyes on
Bertie instead. It's a brilliant plan - until Gussie himself
turns up, imitating Bertram Wooster. After that, only the massive
brain of Jeeves (himself in disguise) can set things right.
"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" John Humphrys "For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" Marian Keyes "Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" Lynne Truss "The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" Kate Mosse "Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" Susan Hill
