A friend of Bertie Wooster’s Aunt Agatha makes an unannounced visit and wishes to drop off her son at Bertie’s for a couple of weeks. Bertie is not too thrilled about this visit, especially as the boy turns out to be on the wilder side. The valet Jeeves, as always, does everything he can to help but has much to say about certain things taking place in the household.
The short story ”Jeeves and the Unwanted Guest,” originally called ”Jeeves and the Unbidden Guest,” was written by the master of humor, P. G. Wodehouse. The story unites the reader with some of the most legendary characters of comedy. The story is read by B. J. Harrison.
B. J. Harrison started his Classic Tales Podcast back in 2007, wanting to breathe new life into classic stories. He masterfully plays with a wide array of voices and accents and has since then produced over 500 audiobooks. Now in collaboration with SAGA Egmont, his engaging narration of these famous classics is available to readers everywhere.
