Aunts Aren’t Gentlemen
Bertie withdraws to the village of Maiden Eggesford on doctor’s orders to rest and relax. Only the presence of the irrepressible Aunt Dahlia shatters the rustic peace. However nice they may be, Aunts are certainly not gentlemen.
A Jeeves and Wooster novel
Bertie Wooster has been overdoing metropolitan life a bit, and the doctor orders fresh air in the depths of the country. But after moving with Jeeves to his cottage at Maiden Eggesford, Bertie soon finds himself surrounded by aunts – not only his redoubtable Aunt Dahlia but an aunt of Jeeves’s too. Add a hyper-sensitive racehorse, a very important cat and a decidedly bossy fiancÃ©e – and all the ingredients are present for a plot in which aunts can exert their terrible authority. But Jeeves, of course, can cope with everything – even aunts, and even the country. The final Jeeves and Wooster novel shows P.G. Wodehouse still able to delight, well into his nineties.
