P. G. Wodehouse
When Lady Patricia Maud Marsh leaps into his taxicab and begs him to hide her, American musical composer George Bevan is swept off his feet and into an intricate web of romantic intrigue strung around Belpher Castle. Mistaken identities, scheming aunts, and crafty servants come together in this classic Wodehouse comedic caper.
“The realization came over George that, though he might be in love, the fairway of love was dotted with more bunkers than any golf course he had ever played on in his life.”
Maud’s family believes George to be another American with whom she had a romance a year ago; Maud’s aunt wants her to marry Reggie Byng, who is in love with Alice Faraday, Maud’s father’s secretary; Maud’s father, meanwhile, has fallen in love with an actress. George, with the help of Reggie, must win Maud’s heart or love’s labor will be lost!
Sir Pelham Grenville (P. G.) Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English author and playwright and one of the premier humorists of the twentieth century. His inimitable prose, in the words of Evelyn Waugh, “has made a world for us to live in and delight in.” Wodehouse’s hundreds of written works include the masterful Jeeves & Wooster and Blandings Castle stories.
