Wilhelmina “Billie” Bennett, red-haired daughter of American millionaire Rufus, loves golf, dogs and Tennyson—and is to marry Eustace Hignett, the weak, poetry-writing son of Mrs. Horace Hignett, the famous English writer on theosophy. Enter Sam Marlowe, Eustace's cousin, who plays tournament golf, and Jane Hubbard, Billie's big-game-hunting friend, and another romp in the inimitable Wodehouse style unfolds.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Mr. Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.”

    Evelyn Waugh

  • “One of Britain’s most talented comic writers.”

    Time

  • “Has many of the qualities of the author's more mature later novels (eccentric characters, clever farce, and inventive metaphors), as well as the additional charm of being a diamond in the rough…Frederick Davidson, as usual, adds to the fun with his energetic reading.”

    Library Journal

  • “Davidson’s semi-voiced readings of Wodehousian tales are wonderful…His range of accents and his ability to capture emotional intonations add enjoyment of Woodhouse’s fine humor.” 

    Kliatt

Listener Opinions

    " Lotta fun. This was a notch or two above his norm, which is of course good. Nobody spins a metaphor like this man. From this book, just one will do. His mouth "gaped like a hole in a sliding cliff." "

    " Hilarious! A great read. Wodehouse is one of the best. "

    " Hilarious and random--elephant guns and electric pianos! "

    " Vintage Wodehouse. A beautiful red-haired girl in search of her Galahad. A hypochondriac American in search of a peaceful summer of health and relaxation. And 3 young men in search of the redhead. Only one of the men is right for Billie, the redhead, but she doesn't know it, the others have their persuasive points, and the Atlantic crossing takes 9 days on the slow boat. Charming and easygoing, like a Tanqueray and tonic on a warm summer night. "
