Tuesday 30th October: Ben Schott on ‘Jeeves and the King of Clubs’

 

Join Ben Schott in conversation with Humphrey Barber about his magnificent new homage to P.G. Wodehouse.

In Jeeves and the King of Clubs Ben Schott leads Jeeves and Wooster on an uproarious adventure of espionage through the corridors of Whitehall, the lawns of Brinkley Court, and the private clubs of St James’s. We encounter an unforgettable cast of characters – old and new – including disreputable politicians and gambling bankers, slushy debs and Cockney cabbies, sphinx-like tailors, and sylph-like spies. Jeeves and the King of Clubs is essential reading for aficionados of The Master, and a perfect introduction to the joys of Jeeves and Wooster for those who have never before dipped their toe.
