Tophole!

The very first line shows how brilliant PG is with language: 'I marmaladed a slide of toast with something of a flourish'.

Why don't we marmalade toast? We butter it, after all. And the choice of marmalade rather than jam, chocolate spread or Marmite. So British, so redolent of weekend breakfasts and holidays, so perfect in every way.

Lie down, relax, let yourself go into the hands of the master...

Cracking plot as well.
