I was a little surprised, for nothing in our previous conversation had suggested the topic. I was once butted by one as a child. Not goats. Do I believe in ghosts? Wodehouse, there is one particular story fit for the Halloween season?
Only Wodehouse can exorcise the spookiness factor from a haunted house tale like he has done in this short and fast paced piece of delight. The protagonist of the story is Mr. James Rodman, an author of breathtaking mystery stories, which are rife with cold-blooded characters and action packed plots.
When his aunt Leila J. It was at this cottage, that his aunt, a prolific writer, used to write all her romantic novels — which James, who always believed in writing macho stuff alone, had no regard for and used to contempt — and when James moves in to this cottage, strange things start to happen with his literary perception, his life and his writing.
James, who till then never had a heroine figure in his mystery novels, is influenced by the atmosphere of the cottage to include beautiful lady characters into his new novel.
Things are further complicated when a beautiful young lady and a dog make their appearance at the cottage one day, leading to some highly romantic ambiance, and everyone who visit the cottage seems to be under a romantic spell, which start to worry James. Since this is a very short story, I will not elaborate on the plot further, but the narrations of the time spent by James at the cottage is really drenched in Wodehousian humor and is charming to read.
Highly recommended for Wodehouse fans and readers who love a quick short refreshing story.

Honeysuckle Cottage by P. Wodehouse, The magic trick: A hilarious premise I read a lot of short stories for this magic tricks blog, and the vast majority are serious. Some are downright somber, but nearly all are working pretty hard to make an artistic statement. Which is great. Let me clear, I love the artistic statement. But every so often, it is nice to retreat from art into a world of entertainment, the world of honeysuckle cottage. Wodehouse is my favorite writer.
