"A Cuckoo In The Nest, first published in 1921 and the basis of one of the author's most famous plays, is one of his most sparkling and inventive novels. This reissue coincides with his ninety-first birthday.
It is at the breakfast table that we join the irrepressible Peter Wykeham and his new wife, Sophia. Peter has just received a letter from Lady Bunter, an old family friend who has not seen him since his christening, inviting the newly-wed couple for the weekend (and some shooting) at Rushcombe Fitz-Chartres, Somerset. Sophia is at first slightly apprehensive, but they decide eventually, as Peter's kedgeree gets cold, to go."
