KIRKUS REVIEW

An octogenarian caper -- which lightfoots it as easily as did his younger tangle-toes -- is guided by Wodehousian woolineas and refers to many a previous favorite. One is a pig -- Empress of Blandigns -- and her proud owner; there is old Pongo, a look at the Drones Club, and of course some with the lads and lasses as the romances, in a necessary reverse twist, settle down to normal. The double dealing over the Empress; the switch-in over who wants to wed whom -- but how to get to the altar; the nefarious machinations of English-American alliances; m'Lord Emsworth's battle with the Duke of Dunstable; and -- center-spot-Lord keepin' things tickin' for everyone's good, with dedicated sweetness and light, -- all this will spell W O D E H O U S E for just such an audience. Further information not necessary.
