Plot summary[ edit ] Galahad Threepwood is in residence at Blandings Castle , and finds his brother Lord Emsworth , the ninth Earl , beset by the usual collection of woes. His sister, Lady Hermione Wedge , has not only hired a secretary Sandy Callender to mind his affairs, but has also invited Dame Daphne Winkworth to stay and, as Galahad discovers, to reignite an old flame and take up permanent residence as the next Countess. Wilfred and Tipton had met in New York several days earlier for an evening of dinner, drinks, and imprisonment. The other front-runners have dropped out, and Sam believes he has a sure winner, as Lady Hermione will not let Veronica lose her a multimillionaire son-in-law. If Sam would come down to Blandings, Gally believes, and plead his case with Sandy, all would be resolved. But when Sam does so, his first accidental encounter with Sandy proves disastrous: he chases her, she eludes him, and in giving up the chase he is confronted by the local constabulary.

Start your review of Galahad at Blandings Blandings Castle, 10 Write a review Jan 26, Justine Olawsky rated it really liked it I have a theory that early in God looked down upon the earth and had mercy. He saw the 20th century nearing its dawn and knew, of course, what calamities and cruelties awaited mankind: world wars, genocide, tyrannies unbound.
He knew we were to be a people desperately in need of laughter. And so, that October, God gave us P. What a gift! He just makes me happy, this Wodehouse fellow. To return again to Blandings is to take a deep breath of something wholly comforting, yet also I have a theory that early in God looked down upon the earth and had mercy. To return again to Blandings is to take a deep breath of something wholly comforting, yet also to plunge headfirst into something deliciously bracing.
These books are similar enough not to withstand much in the way of binge-reading; however, spaced delicately apart, they become oases of reassuringly madcap hilarity, aye, and certain they are to heal the weary soul and lift a troubled heart. Galahad Threepwood, denizen of Blandings Castle, younger son, wastrel, and rogue is the driving force behind most of the plot in this one. He juggles the many trials and deceptions of the many young couples under his spell with elegance and ease, and it is no spoiler to say that everything comes out just right in the end.
For any fan of Wodehouse, it is a no-brainer to say that this is one of his reliable diversions and an excellent choice to while away a few hours. Just get on with it already. The 21st century has its own woes to drown in Wodehouse.
