Overview

A Damsel in Distress is a novel by P. G. Wodehouse, first published in the U.S. on October 4, 1919 , and in the U.K. October 1919. It had previously been serialized in The Saturday Evening Post, between May and June that year.

Golf-loving American composer George Bevan falls in love with a mysterious young lady who takes refuge in his taxicab one day; when he tracks her down to a romantic rural manor, mistaken identity leads to all manner of brouhaha...

The story was made into a silent, black-and-white movie in 1919. In 1928 a dramatization by Ian Hay was staged, with Hay, Wodehouse and A. A. Milne investing in the production, about which Wodehouse said "I don't think we shall lose our money, as Ian has done an awfully good job.".

In fact, I've picked up a dozen more free books by the author. It is a delightful tale, wittily written. If you like BBC, you will like this, too.

Chilvary from the days of old as our hero discreetly attempts to save his lady love from possible scandal and allow them to become betrothed. A warm story set in the early days of the 20th century seems far more distant that it actually is; can it be civilization has changed so quickly in such a short time? If for no other reason pick up the book and decide for yourself. The story is easy to follow even for modern readers and it will entertain, educate and give you glimpse into a genteel past you may be totally unaware of. What are the obstacles and how are they overcome? They seem unsurmountable due to the society of the time, but our hero is resourceful and determined. Definitely a good read.

A delightful romp. Who loves whom, and who will win the damsel? Better known for his "Jeeves" whodunnits, Wodehouse can also play with romantic comedy.
