Schwein oder Nichtschwein

Description: Was hätte Bertolt Brecht mit Queen Mum verbunden, was eint Gerry Adams und Tony Blair? Die unerschütterliche Liebe zu P.G. Wodehouse. Wer hier nicht lacht, der kann es nicht: Der anerkannt beste, klassische Humorist des unterkühlten englischen Humors berichtet von den Verwicklungen um Schloss Blandings, die Entführung eines Schweins und wie Butler Jeeves - der in Großbritannien und den USA sprichwörtlich wurde - und Sir Galahad darum kämpfen, das Leben wieder in normale Bahnen zu zwängen.

Jeeves och feodalandan

Description: Vem hade kunnat ana att Bertie Woosters nyanlagda lilla tangorabatt en studie i rött och enligt ägarens mening prickarnas prick över i skulle bli den tuva som så när hade stjälpt hela Berties lyckolass? Föga anade han, där han stod framför spegeln i sin lya och stolt smekte den rödlätta grodden, att han därmed utmanade ett öde hemskare än döden. Hade inte Jeeves ryckt till undsättning på sitt genomfeodala sätt, vet ingen hur det hade kunnat gå. Möjligen kan man våga en gissning att denna bok JEEVES OCH FEODALANDAN då skulle ha blivit något helt annat förmodligen en av världslitteraturens stora tragedier, värdig en Dostojevskij eller någon av de andra ryssarna.

Psmith in the City

Description: Psmith and his friend Mike are sent by their fathers to work in the City. But work is the last thing on Psmith's mind; surely there are more interesting things to do with the day than spend it in a bank? Unfortunately the natives aren't conducive to his socialising within work hours, but all's fair in love and work as the monocled Old Etonian, with a little grudging help from Mike, begins to rope in allies in order to reform the bank manager and make him A Decent Member of Society. And if all else fails, there's always blackmail.

As Bertie observes, whatever aunts are, they are Not gentlemen.

The Luck of the Bodkins

Description: Things on board the R.M.S. Atlantic are terribly, terribly complicated...Monty Bodkin loves Gertrude, who thinks he likes Lotus Blossom, a starlet, who definitely adores Ambrose, who thinks that she has a thing for his brother, Reggie, who is struck by Mabel Spence, sister-in-law of Ikey Llewellyn (movie mogul, Ambrose's prospective employer, and reluctant smuggler), but hasn't the means to marry her.
With well-meaning but unhelpful ship's steward Albert Peasemarch and a toy mouse with a screw-top head thrown in for good measure, it will, indead, take the luck of the Bodkins to sort it all out.
