Among Bertie's fellow guests at Brinkley Court are redheaded troublemaker Bobbie Wickham, neurologist Sir Roderick Glossop (masquerading as a butler!), his awful former headmaster Aubrey Upjohn, and novelist Mrs. Homer Cream with her odd son. Alas for Bertie, Jeeves has gone on vacation, and when Bertie becomes entangled in the various goings-on of the house party, he simply gets deeper and deeper into trouble. This was a fine Jeeves and Wooster, but it needed more Jeeves and a more complicated plot to be one of Wodehouse's really brilliant outings; it's just a little on the slight side, though very funny.
