For George Finch, one of “nature’s white mice” and probably the worst artist ever to put brush to canvas, there are many obstacles to overcome. Undoubtedly the greatest is his beloved Molly’s fearsome stepmother, Mrs. Waddington, who has her eye on an eligible English lord for a son-in-law. Luckily, George has an ally in sharp-witted Hamilton Beamish, an old family friend of the Waddingtons. Then there is George’s butler, Mullett, and his light-fingered girlfriend, Fanny, whose valuable skills are of particular interest to the would-be father-in-law.

    " I've always heard good things about Wodehouse, and after reading this, I know why. Hysterical! Strongly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Thrift | 12/8/2012

    " An unusually complicated plot for PGW. Beyond the usual frustrated engagement there's a crime spree, a comment on Prohibition, two additional love sub-plots. And some of the wittiest language of the canon, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian | 10/23/2012

    " Enjoyable romantic comedy set in New York. Written at the height of the prohibition, which is reflected in the big police raid on the "Purple Chicken". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brynna | 3/13/2012

    " Classic P. G. Wodehouse set in America during Prohibition. As usual, frequently worthy of laughing out loud. "

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.
