Overview

Picadilly Jim was a gossip columnist's dream. His life was one breach of promise after another drunken brawl.

He rather Victorian aunt was not amused.

So she decides to reform him. Unfortunately, she happens to choose a time when Jim has fallen in love and has decided he will reform himself. Life becomes complicated. With a beautiful piece of Wodehouse twisted logic, Jim ends up having to pretend he's himself. Whether this is the apex of honesty or the most base example of dishonesty only you can decide. Whatever it is, it's hilarious.

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.
