Hi there!The Robert Benchley Society qrote:
My mother and I used to read a book together and I think it was by Robert Benchley. I think it was called Noblesse Oblige, and was very funny.
Would you happen to know anything about this?
Thank you for contacting the Robert Benchley Society. There is no book of Benchley's by the name "Noblesse Oblige." You can find a listing of all Benchley's books, with the titles of the individual essays in each book, on
our website at
According to Wikipedia there are a couple of works by that name:
Noblesse Oblige (book), a humorous book on U and non-U English edited by Nancy Mitford
Noblesse Oblige (short story), a short story by P. G. Wodehouse

"What is the news this morning, Mr. MacGregor?" I asked, peering around from
behind a hangover.
