Publisher's Summary

The debonair Uncle Fred makes a welcome return to Blandings, where plotting and confusion is rife. Blackmail, sabotage, jilted lovers and pigs under threat of kidnap all feature largely, making this hilarious instalment in the Blandings series irresistible to fans and newcomers alike.

The story sees lovely debutante Myra Schoonmaker unhappily ensconced in Blandings at the insistence of Lady Constance Keeble, who objects to Myra's entanglement with down-at-heel curate Bill Bailey. But Blandings never has been a place to stifle the wants of the heart for long.

Soon, all kinds of subterfuge and shifty goings-on are afoot to reunite the lovebirds, with the help of an unbeatable cast of misfits and society schmoozers including Pongo Twistleton, Lord Tilbury, Lavender Briggs and of course, amiably vague Lord Emsworth and his trusty 'man-mountain' butler Beach.

    "Wonderful escape book!"
    What did you like most about Service with a Smile?

    The humour. PG Wodehouse is a firm favourite.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Service with a Smile?

    Difficult as it's all wonderful prose. I suppose when Clarence jumps into the lake with all his clothes on!!!


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He's pure genius. He narration of all the different voices and characters is spot on!


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What's a tag line!? "The Wonderful World of Wodehouse!"?


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone who needs a break from the problems of everyday life should escape to the magical world of PG Wodehouse. He is very underrated and is a literary genius.
