I love this book. It very seriously does its best to give a consistent chronology and genealogy and geography for the sagas of Bertie Wooster, the golf stories, and Blandings Castle. And what you end up with, of course, is rather like the wonderful explanations and stories you find in rabbinic commentary of the Bible. The authors clearly know their stuff and include many details. There is even a train schedule or two for getting from London to Market Blandings. It's delightful!

I am surprised that no mention is made of the relationship between Bertie and Blandings; I was sure that Bertie is a distant cousin of the Threepwoods or their relatives; and, in fact, Blandings Castle is mentioned below. The authors do suggest that Bertie ages from 25 to 29 over the course of the stories. There is a surprising chapter on "The Legitimacy of Ronnie Fish." And much, much more as they use the events and asides in the stories to prove their deductions.

A helpful list of the books in each saga is given. For the Jeeves and Wooster books, it is as follows (in alphabetical, not chronological, order):
Aunts Aren't Gentlemen
Blandings Castle
Carry On, Jeeves
The Code of the Woosters

Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit
Joy in the Morning
