Sunset at Blandings

Sunset at Blandings by P.G. Wodehouse (Chatto & Windus, 1977; revised Everyman’s Library, 2015) The final, unfinished Wodehouse novel. Much like Pratchett’s ‘The Shepherd’s Crown’, the un-fleshed-out text stirs memories of what was, while throwing light on the authorial process. In this instance, Plum-worship has led to the adding of copious and mostly inconsequential third-party annotations.

Blandings, Series 1

Blandings, Series 1 adapted by Guy Andrews (BBC, 2013) Series One of Blandings, although adapted rather loosely from the P. G. Wodehouse books (and lacking their most memorable character, Gally Threepwood), nevertheless manages to conjure up a merriment not out of keeping with its source material. Well cast, fast-moving and frivolous.
