Overview

Jimmy Crocker, aka Piccadilly Jim, is a lively young American ex-newspaper man who meets Ann Chester, the girl of his dreams, in London. The problem is that Jim once wrote a bad review of her first book of poetry. They set sail to New York together with Ann still not knowing her suitor is the dastardly critic. Add a brilliantly colorful Manhattan setting, an unlikely butler, odd spies, eccentric police officers, scientific secrets, plus an odious boy called Ogden, and the ingredients are in place for one of P. G. Wodehouse's most deliciously comic feasts. Martin Jarvis has established himself as the leading reader of Wodehouse. In this audiobook, as he did in Carry On, Jeeves and the Just William series, he brilliantly captures the author's irresistible brand of absurd hilarity.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wodehouse spoofs again the British upper crust in this 1917 title, which finds the incorrigible title character facing reform by his haughty aunt.
