Overview

Life was always simple for Sally Nicholas-until she became rich. Being unaccustomed to possessing a great deal of money, Sally hasn't gotten the hang of it yet. This explains why she agrees to back a show written by her fiancé Gerald and staged by her brother, Fillmore. It seems like a good way to make them all happy ... but when Ginger Kemp, a rather hopeless, charming young man Sally met in Roville, appears in America and offers not-very-glad tidings about Gerald, he really puts the cat among the pigeons.

Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever. (Douglas Adams)

Mr. Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in. (Evelyn Waugh)

Author Bio: P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) grew up in England and came to the United States just before World War I, when he married an American. He wrote more than 90 books, and his works, translated into many languages, have won him worldwide acclaim.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This trio (1922, 1956, and 1970, respectively) present a liberal dose of the signature Wodehouse wit and charm. Fans will enjoy his familiar spoofs of uppercrust British stuffiness and mismatched marriages, all with a happy ending.

The usual coincidences and sterotypical Wodehouse characters (beautiful, brainy girl; tongue-tied, good-hearted rube; smarmy, ill-minded complicator-of-situations) without the usual convoluted schemes of his later works, so it's a pleasant read, especially if you act out the dialogue aloud.
