A madcap adventure whose comic twists and turns could only have come from the zany imagination of P. G. Wodehouse

George Bevan, an American composer of musicals, is in England to attend the performance of one. But when Lady Patricia Maud Marsh slips into his taxi, he is drawn into the frivolous intrigues of Belpher Castle. Maud has mistaken George for another American she once fell in love with. She is attempting to escape her aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, who is trying to marry Maud off to her stepson, Reginald. Meanwhile, her father, Lord John Marshmoreton, has fallen in love with an actress. As the castle servants make bets on their lords’ and ladies’ capricious attachments, Wodehouse weaves a jaunty satire that will leave readers breathless with its twists and antics.

About the Author

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
