[Why I read it: Sadly, this is the last Mulliner book I had left to read. However, it always seems that a new Wodehouse book turns up just when I thought I’d read them all. How rare to find a quality writer who is also prolific!]
There are few books that make me laugh out loud and want to inflict excerpts on anyone who happens to be nearby as much as the Mulliner series of short stories do. How delightful that there’s more to P.G. Wodehouse than Jeeves and Wooster…
Definitely the most bizarre Wodehouse story I’ve encountered, this tale of an English Earl who inadvertently swaps bodies with a Hollywood child star during a routine tooth extraction is told with a rate of quips and quibbles quaint per paragraph that your average author would be thrilled to achieve per chapter.
[Why I read it: Wodehouse is one of my favourite authors, so I was pleased to find a title I didn’t recognize in the rather impressive selection of Wodehouse books at Michael’s Books in Bellingham, WA.]
