Right Ho, Jeeves Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Right Ho, Jeeves

Bertie Wooster has just returned from Cannes after a holiday with his Aunt Dahlia, her daughter Angela, and Angela's friend Madeleine Bassett. His friend Gussie Fink-Nottle, in love with Madeleine, is advised by Jeeves, Bertie's ever-resourceful ‘gentleman's personal gentleman', to accept her invitation to a fancy dress ball, but Gussie ruins things by forgetting the address. Meanwhile Bertie is in bed one morning nursing a severe hangover when Dahlia appears, and orders him to come and stay with her at her home, Brinkley Court, so he can give the prizes to the boys at the local school at the end of term. She knows he will make a fool of himself, but she has lost a large sum while gambling at Monte Carlo and needs a good laugh. Recoiling in horror, Bertie sends Gussie to deputise for him. However he ends up going to Brinkley anyway, to find that his cousin Angela has broken off her engagement with Tuppy Glossop, and Gussie has fallen out with Madeline.

There are inevitable romantic misunderstandings, family arguments, cooks threatening to hand in their notice, and a hilarious scene when the teetotal Gussie, his orange juice well laced with alcohol, ends up presenting the school prizes, and insults everyone in the process. The result is total uproar, until Jeeves comes to the rescue.
