Hands down one of the greatest Wodehouse books of all time. So many people read the Wooster stories and praise Bertie for his clever language and near-escapes--and while it's true that he's a gift of a character, I think no one comes close to the utter hilarity that is Uncle Fred. Cocktail Time features the classic Wodehouse catalyst--knocking the hat off someone important--but mixes it up by giving good old Fred a slingshot and a Brazil Nut. Intrigue, best selling novels, disguises, and more than just a few references to the fateful "Day at the Dog Races" that has colored the relationship between Reginald "Pongo" Twistleton and his not-so-beloved Uncle, are what make this an excellent starter for Wodehouse fans.
