By P. G. Wodehouse
Five years have passed since Peter Burns was handed a letter informing him that his fiancée, Audrey Blake, had abruptly left him in the midst of a complacent period of engagement. Painfully aware, in the five years since, that his previous life had been so selfish a slush as to drive Audrey away entirely, Peter has dedicated himself to a new life marked by a fervent spirit of generosity.
“Nature had given me the soul of a pig, and circumstances had conspired to carry on Nature’s work.”
In the altruism of his newfound nature, however, he has (with the help of his new fiancée, Cynthia Drassilis) spun himself into a difficult web of American thieves, false British butlers, and a spoiled child with a price on his head—not to mention the return of his former fiancée.
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.
