Sunset at Blandings


Sunset at Blandings

"Sunset at Blandings" is an unfinished novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on November 17 1977 by Chatto & Windus, London and in the United States on September 7 1978 by Simon & Schuster, Inc., New York. The book was republished by Penguin Books in 1990, and again, in a "revised and amended edition" in 2000. This last edition was revised and updated by N.T.P. Murphy and Tony Ring, and featured a foreword by Douglas Adams.

Wodehouse was still working on the book when he died in 1975; the published version was edited by Richard Usborne, and includes Wodehouse's notes on the ending of the story.

The story is, as the poignant name suggests, another tale set at Blandings Castle, filled as ever with romance and imposters. Galahad Threepwood uses his charm and wit to ensure his brother Clarence continues to lead a quiet and peaceful life.
