Synopsis : With the sun finally setting on that wondrous earthy paradise that is Blandings, Vicky Underwood finds herself forcibly parted from her beloved, Jeff Bennison. Her Uncle Galahad turns his not inconsiderable talents to reuniting the love-birds. Wodehouse's final chronicle of Blandings is unfinished, but three Wodehouse admirers have supplied a treasure trove of notes and plot details, providing fascinating insights into the mind of the author.
A propos de l'auteur: The author of almost a hundred books and the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner, P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and educated at Dulwich College. After two years with the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank he became a full-time writer, contributing to a variety of periodicals including Punch and the Globe. He married in 1914. As well as his novels and short stories, he wrote lyrics for musical comedies with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, and at one stage had five musicals running simultaneously on Broadway. His time in Hollywood also provided much source material for fiction. At the age of 93, in the New Year's Honours List of 1975, he received a long-overdue knighthood, only to die on St Valentine's Day some 45 days later.

He began with excellent school stories, then graduated to novels about types such as Psmith and Uckridge; he then discovered the world of the 'drone' Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves. Wodehouse is the perfect non-serious writer, the learnedly vacuous comedian. He will, says William Trevor, be remembered when many 'of the swells with messages' are forgotten. In the Jeeves novels, and certain others, he achieved perfection of style; he wrote just for entertainment, and he meant nothing at all. The stories are indeed perfect entertainment. He has become, with the recent advantage of good television adaptations, an accepted part of life." Seymour-Smith. N° de réf. du libraire 007761
