Most of the big money belongs to Torquil Paterson Frisby, the dyspeptic American millionaire—but that doesn’t stop him wanting more out of it. His niece, the beautiful Ann Moon, is engaged to “Biscuit,” Lord Biskerton, who doesn’t have very much of the stuff and so he has to escape to Valley Fields to hide from his creditors. Meanwhile, his old school friend Berry Conway, who is working for Frisby, himself falls for Ann—just as Biscuit falls for her friend Kitchie Valentine. Life in the world of Wodehouse can sometimes become a little complicated.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sam | 2/2/2014

    " A very pleasant, essentially romantic, novel about some toffs, their money and love worries written in Wodehouse's gentlemanly whimsy manner. Lot's of 'golly!'s and 'bally-good old boy' and that sort of stuff. Charming, a nice read if not a literary masterpiece. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bill Graff | 1/6/2014

    " Not Wodehouse's best, but certainly has moments. I felt that the characters were less interesting then in many other Wodehouse novels, the the plot seemed a bit meandering. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jodie | 12/21/2013

    " A great anecdote to Wolf Hall! I always love the joy of immersing myself in Wodehouse's world now and again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Margaret | 12/6/2013

    " There are some choice passages, but for me, this wasn't an outstanding Wodehouse. The plot doesn't really come together until the end, and the characters are more type-like and less individual than in his best work. "
