  • And Berry Came Tooby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    Eight stories in which we encounter ‘the hair-raising adventures and idiotic situations of the Pleydell family’ (Punch). Along with John Buchan and ‘Sapper’, Yates dominated the adventure book market of the inter-war years, and Berry is regarded as one of British comic writing’s finest creations. Read these and weep (with laughter). more...

  • As Berry And I Were Sayingby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This semi-autobiographical novel is a humorous account of the author’s hazardous experiences in France at the end of the World War II. Darker and less frivolous than some of Yates’ earlier books, it was a great hit with the public when published and a ‘scrapbook of the Edwardian age as it was seen by the upper-middle classes’. more...

  • B-Berry And I Look Backby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This is Yates’ final book, a semi-autobiographical novel spanning a lifetime of events from the sinking of the Titanic to the notorious Tichborne murder case. It opens with Berry, one of British comic writing’s finest creations, at his funniest, and is a companion volume to 'As Berry and I Were Saying'. Pure, vintageYates. more...

  • Berry And Co.by Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This collection of short stories featuring ‘Berry’ Pleydell and his chaotic entourage established Dornford Yates’ reputation as one of the best comic writers in a generation, and made him hugely popular. The German caricatures in the book carried such a sting that when France was invaded in 1939 Yates was put on the wanted list and had to flee. more...

  • The Berry Sceneby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    These stories, written in response to huge popular demand, give us classic Berry Pleydell at the top of his form. The first story sees Berry capturing a German spy at a village cricket match in 1914, and things get more bizarre from then on. A self-consciously nostalgic work consisting of tense plotting and high farce of the best kind. more...

  • Blind Cornerby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    This is Yates’ first thriller: a tautly plotted page-turner featuring the crime-busting adventures of suave Richard Chandos. Chandos is thrown out of Oxford for ‘beating up some Communists’, and on return from vacation he witnesses a murder. Teaming up with friend Jonathan Mansel, a stratagem is devised to catch the killer. more...

  • Blood Royalby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    At his chivalrous, rakish best in a story of mistaken identity, kidnapping, and old-world romance, Richard Chandos takes us on a romp through Europe in the company of a host of unforgettable characters. This fine thriller can be read alone or as part of a series with ‘Blind Corner’, ‘An Eye For a Tooth’, ‘Fire Below’ and ‘Perishable Goods’. more...

  • The Brother Of Daphneby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    Daphne is ‘well-born, elegant, beautiful, and not especially bright’. In this, Yates’ earliest collection of stories, we meet the Pleydell clan and encounter their high-spirited comic adventures. It is a world of Edwardian gentility and accomplished farce that brought the author instant fame when the stories appeared in ‘Windsor Magazine’. more...

  • Cost Priceby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    A story from Dornford Yates’ later career, of stolen treasure, set against a backdrop of World War II: adventure, a travelling circus and much more besides. Lots of favourite characters here, as well as new ones, and a few striking villains. It is the legendary Chandos’ final fictional appearance. A tense, assured plot and vintage comedy. more...

  • The Courts Of Idlenessby Dornford Yates

    House of Stratus 2011; US$ 8.99

    These comic stories are set during World War I and the period just after, when the genteel world of Edwardian England had changed beyond recognition. We encounter the madcap adventures of a group of well-to-do young people as they career across Europe from Madeira to Macedonia fighting heinous villains and solving mysteries. more...
