As rooms go, the salon was small, and the large, oval table, still bearing the remains of supper, occupied much of the space. In his hey day, and as testament to his fine writing, Dornford Yates’ work often featured in the bestseller list. Indeed, ‘Berry’ is one of the great comic creations of twentieth century fiction; the ‘Chandos’ titles also being successfully adapted for television.

  • The charming self satisfied heroes of Dornford Yates Wodehousian tales are at it again, at home and abroad in a fairy tale England and that was --- at least if you had the money, the time, the taste, and the good luck to find it. Yates is a terrible snob, but just enjoy the fun. These books book's define nostalgic charm, and Yates has a magical lyrical and unique way with the English language. No one save maybe Anthony Hope (The Prisoner of Zenda) ever wrote quite like this.

    White Ladies and its neighbor houses are as much fantasy today as Middle Earth, but it's a pleasant escape from today's reality.

    But I warn you Yates is addictive.

  • I don't understand myself. These stories, mostly of high jinks in the English countryside, are grossly overwritten, especially in descriptions of scenery. The protagonists are all perfect gentlemen, apart from their assumption of entitlement and chauvinist superiority, while the ladies are paragons of demure pulchritude. And yet I find them quite delightful in their depiction of a place and time that never was. It's a puzzlement.

  • The author was about 16 years old when Queen Victoria died and about 26 when Edward VII died, and I think that he regretted that era until his own death in 1960. The book is a collection of old-fashioned pranks in the style of Oxford University. I had friends who talked like that, enjoyed pranks like that, and of course now they are all dead. Similarly, London still had in the 50s and 60s nice gentlemen who had served in India. You would see them drinking heavily in the pubs or the hotels' bars and hear them talk about the Empire. Now they are all gone. Time flies. The best movie about the generation of the author is The Remains of the Day. I prefer this choice because you get another great movie in prime (Sense and Sensibility).
    It was a generation where the upper class did not have much of a social conscience, not because they were heartless, but because "it was not done". Conversation should be light and airy with spirited banter.
    My heart goes two ways: on one hand I hate the stuff and what it represents. The book is almost unreadable. On the other hand, I can hear the voice of some old friends of mine. If you are interested in the spirit of the period, you should rather try the books of Dorothy Sayers (who was from Oxford as well). Start with Whose Body?: 1 (The Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries) It is well written, there is a mystery, the book is full of people like that and frankly it is in another literary class. It is also at a great price (0.99 today).
