Something FreshBook - 2005
A Blandings novel This is the first Blandings novel, in which P.G. Wodehouse introduces us to the delightfully dotty Lord Emsworth, his bone-headed younger son, the Hon. Freddie Threepwood, his long-suffering secretary, the Efficient Baxter, and Beach the Blandings butler. As Wodehouse wrote, ?without at least one impostor on the premises, Blandings Castle is never itself?. In Something Fresh there are two, each with an eye on a valuable scarab which Lord Emsworth has acquired without quite realizing how it came into his pocket. But of course things get a lot more complicated than this...

First in the Blandings Castle saga, Wodehouse's most famous after the Jeeves and Wooster books. I find Wodehouse tales to be a great medicine for feelings of anxiety and fear in troubled times.
