Current: Something New by P. G. Wodehouse "Wanted--Young Man of Good Appearance who is poor and reckless to undertake delicate and dangerous enterprise. Good pay for the right man." That enticing ad is sufficient to precipitate Ashe Marson, a Young Man of Good Appearance (who also happens to be poor and reckless), into the drafty halls of Blandings Castle, where he will try to make "something new" of his life by purloining a rare Egyptian scarab--all for the best motives, of course. The resultant hilarious romp through a stately English country home in search of the missing piece also introduces other characters who recur throughout Wodehouse's Blandings Castle saga.
