PG Wodehouse wrote an impressive 96 books throughout his prolific career as an author. Other respected writing by Wodehouse includes poetry, plays and pieces of journalism. He was also a great writer of song lyrics, including a not-insignificant contribution to Cole Porter's work 'Anything Goes', musical creator Sigmund Romberg's 'Rosalie' and many works by composer Guy Bolton and playwright Jerome Kern. These days Wodehouse is more famed for his colourful literary characters such as Lord Emsworth and Mr Mulliner, and these delightful audiobooks on CD and MP3 really do bring this remarkable man’s literary abilities to life.
This collection of short stories features 'The Bishop's Move', 'The Ordeal of Osbert Mulliner', 'The Knightly Quest of Mervyn' and 'The Truth About George'. The stories all centre around the famous Wodehouse character Mr Mulliner and his many tales told in the public house, the Angler's Rest. All tales are eccentric and elaborate and all involve a relative of his. Wodehouse wrote 41 stories in total featuring Mr Mulliner and presented here are a select few of the very best, giving the listener a true taste of Mr Mulliner’s character.
These BBC CD audiobooks feature a full cast with the North Yorkshire British actor Richard Griffiths reading in the role of Mr Mulliner. This ideal casting creates a brilliant dramatisation of these humourous Wodehouse tales of an outlandish Englishman that is all too full of human failings, including the desire to tell some very tall tales!
