Something Fresh

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

When Lord Emsworth absent-mindedly wanders off with a specimen from J. Preston Peters' prized Egyptian scarab collection, the American millionaire is willing to pay five thousand dollars to the person who can get it back for him. Discretion is necessary, however, since Peters' daughter Aline is engaged to Emsworth's son George. Joan Valentine and Ashe Marson both decide to go after the reward - she as Aline Peters' lady's maid, and he as Mr. Peters' valet - and they all end up at Blandings Castle. But is it possible for anyone to steal back the scarab with the Efficient Baxter ever vigilant?

Stiff Upper Lip, Jeeves

Author:

P.G. Wodehouse

Synopsis:

Bertie Wooster vows that nothing will induce him to return to Totleigh Towers, lair of former magistrate Sir Watkyn Bassett. Apart from Sir Watkyn himself, the place is infested with his ghastly daughter Madeline and her admirer, would-be dictator Roderick Spode. But when his old friend 'Stinker' Pinker requests Bertie's help, there's nothing for it but to buckle down and go. His subsequent adventures involve a black statuette, a Brazilian explorer with an appetite for whisky-and-soda, an angry policeman, and the horrors of a school treat. It takes Jeeves, posing as Chief Inspector Witherspoon of the Yard, to sort out the mess and retrieve his employer from the soup.

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 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.

A strange, formidable wind blows into Stellar Plains, New Jersey, where Dory and Robby Lang teach at Eleanor Roosevelt High School. Dory is suddenly and inexplicably repelled by her husband's touch, whilst back at school, life imitates art. The new drama teacher's end-of-term play is Aristophanes' LYSISTRATA, in which women withhold sexual privileges from their menfolk in order to end the Peloponnesian War. And all across town, there's a quiet battle between the sexes: relationships end abruptly and marital issues erupt. Women continue to be claimed by the spell - from Bev Cutler, the overweight guidance counsellor to Leanne Bannerjee, the sexy school psychologist - even the Langs' teenage daughter, Willa, is affected - until everything comes to a climax on the first night of LYSISTRATA...
