By P. G. Wodehouse
Jimmy Crocker’s life, after his father marries into money, is a succession of late nights and painful mornings. However, his past as a writer for the New York Chronicle comes back to haunt him when he falls in love with the very girl whose poetry collection he lambasted in his column: Ann Chester. Hoping to save his bacon and put himself in a place where he can win the heart of this wonderful girl, he adopts a fake name in order to circumvent her loathing for “Piccadilly Jim.”
“The thought that a girl could be as pretty as this one and yet dislike him so much was one of the saddest things Jimmy had ever come across. It was like one of those Things Which Make Me Weep in This Great City so dear to the hearts of the sob-writers of his late newspaper.”
Before you know it, Jimmy is— in classic Wodehouse fashion—entangled in a web of paternal butlers, scaly aunts, identity crises, an attempted kidnapping, and a prototype explosive.
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.
