Desirable Residence, A, WICKHAM, Madeleine [Sophie Kinsella]

A very nice copy. Spine ends faintly bumped, unclipped dust wrapper very lightly edgeworn.; The author's second novel; she also writes the 'shopaholic' novels under the name Sophie Kinsella. 'Tucked away on a Silchester side street, the house owned by teachers Liz and Jonathan Chambers has been empty for a year. Liz, Jonathan, and their moody adolescent daughter Alice live in a dreary apartment above the private college they bought on impulse, hoping to make it a great success. To pay the mortgage they simply must sell their beloved house. Now, as debts mount, their relationship and finances are crumbling.

Unlike Jonathan, who lets things happen, Liz's need to take action leads to Marcus Witherstone, driver of a Mercedes, husband of a difficult wife, and senior partner of the firm, handling the house sale. Marcus has two splendid ideas, to rent the house instead of selling it--and have an affair with Liz. And when teenage Alice becomes infatuated with the dashing out-of-work actor and his wife who lease the property, a wicked comedy of modern marriage begins...and the asking price for a house includes a stunning renovation of dreams and hearts.'; "Alan Ayckbourn meets Joann Trollope. . . . Witty and wise. " London Daily Express.

165 2978 WODEHOUSE, P. G. [ed. and preface by D.R. Bensen] Women in Wodehouse [Plum's Peaches]
Hardcover Barnes & Noble: NY; c1991,1995; 324 pages Very Good in Very Good dust wrapper 
Quarter cloth binding lightly bumped at faintly sunned spine tail. Previous owner address label on front free endpaper pages 278 to rear endpaper have a single long crease as if pages bent at one time; no binding problems, pages clean and bright. Dust wrapper with creased flaps very lightly edgeworn.; This collection of 14 short stories (publication dates range from 1912-1950) was originally published as "Plum's Peaches". From the dust wrapper: "Think of Wodehouse and you think of Jeeves and Bertie Wooster, of Lord Emsworth, of Psmith, of Ukridge, of Mr. Mulliner, true enough. But, when you come down to it, what motivates these worthies (and unworthies)? Running after them, running from them, wooing them, placating them, rescuing them, being rescued by them-whenever a Wodhouse male goes into high gear, it almost always has something to do with a woman, and probably on too good for him at that.

The work of Pelhem Grenvill ("Plum") Wodehouse displays both a high respect and keen relish for women-from demure damsels to frenzied flappers, his female characters are usually saner than his men (which isn't saying much). Here is an orchard of Wodehouse peaches (and a lemon or two): fourteen short stories featuring the outrageous Bobbie Wickham, the three ex-wives of millionare Vincent Jopp, the extortionate Vera Prebble, the near lethal Celia Tennant, the abundantly ripe Maudie Wilberforce, Cleopatra herself reincarnate in Cora McGuffy Spottsworth, and a basketful more. For those for whom romance is not enough, the stories provide useful instruction on how to avoid dealing with fiery dragons, the consequences of multiple concurrent engagements, weight-loss and beauty tips, how to train a fiance, the perils of ambience, a surefire method for establishing a film career and detailed instructions on imitating a hen laying an egg (a personal fowl). Who could ask for more-if indeed as much?"; Image is actual copy on offer.
