Contributed by: US297 Christina Mollineaux Witcher   |   21 Aug 2017

Meet Mr. Mulliner is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. First published in the United Kingdom on 27 September 1927 by Herbert Jenkins, and in the United States on 2 March 1928 by Doubleday, Doran. It introduces the irrepressible pub raconteur Mr. Mulliner, who narrates all nine of the book's stories. The last story, "Honeysuckle Cottage", was not originally a Mr. Mulliner story; it was given a Mulliner frame for the book, and is the only one of the stories which is not explicitly narrated from the bar-parlour of the Anglers' Rest public house.

The Molineux Affair

by Jane Pejsa
Contributed by: US329 Jim Molineux   |   21 Aug 2017

THE MOLINEUX AFFAIR The True Story of the High Society Murder that Rocked Turn-of-the Century New York.

Hardback. Pride, ambition and jealousy are the threads that create the fabric of this book. What began in 1897 as a romantic encounter between Roland Molineux, a wealthy New York man-about-town, and the beautiful Blanche Chesebrough, an aspiring young singer, ended in tragedy less than 2yrs later with two murders by cyanide poisoning and a scandal that rocked New York. The two people who died were Roland's rival in love and the aunt of a man he hated. And the prime suspect was Roland Molineux, whose dark and sordid secrets exploded across America, ending in a stunning courtroom drama where the arrogance of wealth set a killer free. The murders, the trial and the months in Sing Sing's Death House wreaked havoc on the lives of Roland and Blanche Molineux. Their story has been extensively researched by the author and includes material from Blanche's personal memoirs. When Blanche Molineux Scott - the subject of this book - died in 1954 she left her diaries to the author's mother. Thirty years later, the author decided to write the tragic story of her life.
