Description

The Honourable Galahad Threepwood has decided to write his memoirs and England’s aristocrats are all diving for cover, not least Galahad’s formidable sister Lady Constance Keeble who fears that her brother will ruin the family reputation with saucy stories of the 1890s. But Galahad’s memoirs are not the only cause for concern. Yet again Lord Emsworth’s prize pig has been stolen and, as usual, the castle seems to be buzzing with imposters all pretending to be one another. Love and natural justice triumph in the end, but not before Wodehouse has tangled and unangled a plot of Shakespearean complexity in a novel which might as well be subtitled ‘The Price of the Papers’.
