SOMETHING FISHY in The Collector's Wodehouse
The latest volume in Overlook's magnificent Collector's Wodehouse series is Something Fishy, a marvelous novel set in the Elysian suburb of Valley Fields. Something Fishy follows the romantic fortunes of Lord Uffenham's niece Jane, her unspeakable fiance, and Bill Hollister, the dashing stranger who comes to her rescue. When all the characters find themselves involved in the fate of a million-dollar fortune, the stage is set for a classic chain of comic muddles and misunderstandings which naturally result in Bill getting both the girl and the cash.
