Mr Mulliner Speaking Paperback
A Mulliner collection In the bar-parlour of the Angler's Rest, Mr Mulliner tells his amazing tales, which hold his audience of drinkers (referred to only as Pints of Stout and Whiskies-and-Splash) in the palm of his expressive hand.
Here you can discover what happened to The Man Who Gave Up Smoking, share a frisson when the butler delivers Something Squishy on a silver salver ('Your serpent, Sir,' said the voice of Simmons) -- and experience the dreadful Unpleasantness at Bludleigh Court.
Throughout the Mulliner clan remains resourcefully in command in the most outlandish situations, making for a vintage collection of hilarious Wodehouse.

Review by Bjace
Return once more to the Angler's Rest and listen to Mr. Mulliner spin tales of his nearest and dearest. My favorite is probably Those in Peril on the Tee, in which two young men play one of the worst golf games ever played for the love of an overpowering young woman. Also memorable are the three Bobbie Wickham stories, in which she makes three young men very miserable for the love of her. Always a pleasure.
