The peaceful slumber of the Worcester village of Rudge-in-the-Vale is about to be rudely disrupted. First there is a bitter feud between peppery Colonel Wyvern and the Squire of Rudge Hall, rich but miserly Lester Carmody. Second, that archvillain Chimp Twist has opened a health farm, and he and Soapy and Dolly Molloy are planning a fake burglary so Lester can diddle his insurance company. After the knockout drops are served, things get a little complicated. But will Lester’s nephew, John, win over his true love, Colonel Wyvern’s daughter Pat, and restore tranquility to the idyll? It’s a close call.

Quotes & Awards

  • Money for Nothing serves up a Romeo and Juliet–like tale of the romance between the offspring of two feuding buffoons. Typical Wodehouse British farces.”

    " Typical Wodehouse fare, and I don't mean this in any kind of negative way. Yet another beautifully constructed humorous tale of bumbling upper class twits and their peers. Brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elena | 2/20/2013

    " Took quite a while to set up the premise but when it got going it was very cute. Someone said all P.G. Wodehouse novels end in the happiest possible way - this is no exception. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alik | 2/9/2013

    " Forget for a moment about Barth, Sterne and Pynchon, and this would be the funniest thing since Jerome K. Jerome (some 25 years older, in my case). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amrith | 8/30/2012

    " Wodehouse is in fine form here. Only can the master turn a crime novel into a farcical comedy of romantic proportions. The mystery, as it were, is solved; the guy gets the girl, and of course, all is well in the end. "

    " Very amusing - guaranteed to raise a smile. "

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.
