A chance meeting on a train brought together Lord Ickenham and Bill Oakshott—although being told that the love of his life, Hermione, was engaged to none other than Pongo, Lord Ickenham’s nephew, did make Bill feel like he’d been struck behind the ear. But Pongo has troubles of his own to deal with when he accidently breaks one of Hermione’s father’s prized statues—and winds up replacing it with a smuggling vessel full of jewels.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“P. G. Wodehouse is still the funniest writer ever to have put words on paper.” Hugh Laurie
“The gold standard of English wit…There is not, and never will be, anything to touch him.”  Christopher Hitchens
“Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Evelyn Waugh, author of Brideshead Revisited
“The cherry on top of what is already a cake without compare.” Evening Standard (London)
“Happily, Uncle Dynamite is another winner…What sets this book apart is its outstanding dialog, which gives reader Jonathan Cecil broad scope to spread his wonderful gift for voices. A real treat for those who appreciate exquisite language; highly recommended.” Library Journal

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
