Something New (by P G Wodehouse)

'Something New' is a humorous standalone novel by PG Wodehouse, best-known for his 'Jeeves' books.

Ashe, a popular fiction writer, falls in love with a lady's maid, and both find themselves in Blandings Castle.

Unlikely people and events somehow seem believable mixed with Wodehouse humour and fast-moving dialogue. I read this aloud to my teenage sons, and we probably enjoyed it all the more since some of the humour could have been missed reading to oneself.

Delightful - definitely recommended.
