  • 64. No Wedding And No Funeral

    Shy Moscovite Pierre (Hugh Grant) meets Moscovian Hélène (Andie MacDowell) at their own wedding and enjoys several months of marriage to her.

    The next time they meet, at their own house, Hélène is accompanied by a poor but amusing lover Dolokhov (Corin Redgrave), leaving Pierre heartbroken.

    Never mind, with the bald hills on the horizon, there's still time for him to win the love of his local sweetheart using anger, money, and shouting.

    This hugely popular comedy established Hugh Grant as Hollywood's favourite bumbling Russian and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture.

  • 63. I Challenge Thou!

    The party continues!

    As guests greedily sup turtle soup and toast every single person in Russia a storm is brewing...

    Not a literal storm, like a storm, but an internal storm.

    What happens when a massive man with long sad hair and giant healthy red hands is pushed to his limits? Will he explode like a large massive bomb; or will he just sit there looking all sad and red?

    Retribution is coming.

  • 62. Time For Toast

    Dear Listener,

    You are cordially invited to an evening of fine dining, amusements, and powerful dancing at The English Club.

    In attendance will be one SPECIAL GUEST plus Russia's oldest and wealthiest men, and of course me, the sauciest boy in town Count 'Sauce guy' Rostov. Truly it is not to be missed.

    Over 18 delightful courses we will travel the culinary world, consuming everything from chicken chins to sterlet shins. The official sauce of the party is 'mayonnaise' so please dress appropriately.

    I look forward to your reply from the bottom of my sauce pot.

  • 61. Would Thou Pass The Jelly? – Book 4 Begins!

    Say goodbye to Season 3 because it's time for Season 4!

    The war is having a well deserved holiday. It's tired from all the retreating and endless bouts of foggy mist and misty misty fog.

    Even though we're far from the front lines of the actual war there is still a war... but this war is a war between rigid social norms and being honest to your feelings.

    In a literal sense it's also a war between 'you' and 'thou' and may I say now that we have never been more confused by anything so far in the book.

    Thankfully Vera and her army of mouth spiders are on hand to sort it all out.

    It feels good to be back.
