Thank You, Jeeves

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Bertie Wooster's incessant strumming on the banjolele has provoked complaints from the occupants of the neighbouring flats, and the building manager has issued an ultimatum: chuck in the playing, or clear out. So the young master intends to withdraw - along with his faithful valet, of course - to a country cottage where he can twang the strings day and night. But Jeeves refuses to resign himself to such a cacophonous existence, and hands in his notice. In high dudgeon, Bertie prepares to travel to the rural paradise of Chuffnell Regis - only to find that Jeeves is bound for the same destination...

The Code Of The Woosters

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

The Code of the Woosters decrees that one must never let a pal down. So Bertie must hop off to Totleigh Towers in order to mend a lovers' rift between the daffy Madeline Bassett and newt-fancier Gussie Fink-Nottle. As if patching up things between those two drips wasn't sufficient, Bertie also finds himself required to secure the nuptials of Stiffy Byng and Stinker Pinker - not to mention becoming embroiled in a plot to swipe an antique silver cow-creamer. As misunderstandings mount and conspiracies collide, there's only one man who can sort out the whole mess - Jeeves, naturally.

The Inimitable Jeeves

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Typical. Just when Bertie thinks that God's in his heaven and all's right with the world, things start to go wrong again. Aunt Agatha forces him to get engaged to the formidable Honoria Glossop; young Bingo Little is in love for the umpteenth time, and needs Bertie to put in a good word for him with his uncle; and the troublesome twins Claude and Eustace are raising merry havoc. Not to mention some friction in the Wooster home over a red cummerbund, purple socks, and some snazzy Old Etonian spats... Only one man can save the day - the inimitable Jeeves.

The One-In-A-Million Boy

Author:

Monica Wood

Synopsis:

Miss Ona Vitkus has - aside from three months in the summer of 1914 - lived unobtrusively, her secrets fiercely protected. But the boy, with his passion for world records, changes all that. He is eleven. She is one hundred and four years, one hundred and thirty-three days old (they are counting). And he makes her feel like she might be really special after all. Better late than never... Only, it's been two weeks now since he last visited, and she's starting to think he's not so different from all the rest. Then the boy's father comes, for some reason determined to finish his son's good deed. And Ona must show this new stranger that not only are there odd jobs to be done, but a life's ambition to complete...

The Maid's Version

Author:

Daniel Woodrell

Synopsis:

In 1929, an explosion in a Missouri dance hall killed forty-two people. Who was to blame? Mobsters from St. Louis? Embittered gypsies? The preacher who railed against the loose morals of the waltzing couples? Or could it just have been a colossal accident? Alma Dunahew, whose scandalous younger sister was among the dead, believes she knows the answer - and that its roots lie in a dangerous love affair. But no one will listen to a maid from the wrong side of the tracks. It is only decades later that her grandson hears her account and unearths the truth...

Mrs Dalloway

Author:

Virginia Woolf

Synopsis:

One hot June day in London in 1923, the elegant and vivacious Clarissa Dalloway prepares for an evening party, reminiscing about childhood romance, and dwelling on her daughter Elizabeth's rapidly-approaching adulthood. Meanwhile, the shell-shocked Septimus Warren Smith hears the birds in Regent's Park chattering in Greek. There seems to be nothing to link the two: she is middle-aged and prosperous, with a sheltered, happy life behind her; whilst he teeters on the brink of madness, slowly spiralling towards self-annihilation. Yet their two spheres are about to collide...

The Heroes' Welcome

Author:

Louisa Young

Synopsis:

April 1919. The Great War has ended and childhood sweethearts Nadine Waveney and Riley Purefoy are married. Riley is wounded and disfigured and they long for a marriage made of love and passion rather than dependence and pity. Riley's former CO Major Peter Locke, his hysterical wife and the young son they barely know attempt to navigate family life, but are confounded by the ghosts and memories of war. Despite all this, there is the glimmer of promise in the distance: Rose Locke, Peter's cousin and Riley's former nurse, finds that independence might be hers for the taking, after all.
