The Mating Season is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on 9 September 1949 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and in the United States on November 29, 1949 by Didier & C. New York. Starring well-intentioned Bertie Wooster and his resourceful valet Jeeves, the novel takes place at Deverill Hall, where Esmond Haddock lives with his five overcritical aunts.
The Mating Season, The Russian Wodehouse Society. Two pinpricks and a mild raspberry here could remind the alert that Wodehouse was remembering three people who had attacked him for his wartime broadcast talks to America from Berlin. Gussie, up before the beak after his newt-hunt in the Trafalgar Square fountain, gives his name as Alfred Duff Cooper. Duff Cooper had been the Minister of Information who had sponsored William 'Cassandra' Connor's attack on Wodehouse on the BBC National Service. One of the (bad) performers in the King's Deverill village concert was Miss Eustacia Pulbrook.

Perhaps best known for the escapades of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Wodehouse also created the world of Blandings Castle, home to Lord Emsworth and his cherished pig, the Empress of Blandings. His stories include gems concerning the irrepressible and disreputable Ukridge; Psmith, the elegant socialist; the crupulous Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred; and those related by Mr Mulliner, the charming raconteur of The Angler's Rest, and the Oldest Member at the Golf Club.
