Description

About the book:

John Carrol wanted to marry Pat, but he was not cut out for the “dashing lover” business. Pat called him “Poor old Johnnie” – and looked on him in that light. But when she suspected that John was interested in the daughter of Thos. G. Molloy, American millionaire, she found that she just hated the thought of losing him.

And then there was the terrible feud between Colonel Wyvern and Mr. Carmody. Both the Colonel and Mr. Carmody went through much before that was patched up. As for Hugo Carmody, John’s cousin, he found it extremely difficult to raise GBP500 to invest in “The Hot Spot” night club. But he was successful in the end.

This book shows Mr. Wodehouse in his most humorous mood.

About Wodehouse (from Wikipedia):

P G Wodehouse was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. Born in Guildford, the third son of a British magistrate based in Hong Kong, Wodehouse spent happy teenage years at Dulwich College, to which he remained devoted all his life. After leaving school he was employed by a bank but disliked the work and turned to writing in his spare time. His early novels were mostly school stories, but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular characters who became familiar to the public over the years. They include the feather-brained Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet, Jeeves; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith; Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the Oldest Member, with stories about golf; and Mr Mulliner, with tall tales on subjects ranging from bibulous bishops to megalomaniac movie moguls.
