A P.G. Wodehouse novel It's America during Prohibition and shy young George Finch is setting out as an artist - without the encumbrance of a shred of talent. George falls in love with Molly, whose imperious stepmother Mrs Waddington insists he's not the man to marry the stepdaughter of one of New York's most fashionable hostesses. Poor George - he doesn't seem to stand a chance. How George eventually triumphs over the bossy Mrs Waddington makes for a dizzying plot featuring some of Wodehouse's most appealing minor characters - Mullett the butler and his light-fingered girlfriend Fanny, J. Hamilton Beamish, author of the dynamic Beamish Booklets, Officer Garroway the poetic policeman, and Sigsbee H. Waddington, the hen-pecked husband who longs for the wide open spaces of the West. Oh, and does Prohibition mean there's no booze? In a Wodehouse novel? You'll have to wait and see...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It's dangerous to use the word genius to describe a writer, but I'll risk it with him" -- John Humphrys
"For as long as I'm immersed in a P.G. Wodehouse book, it's possible to keep the real world at bay and live in a far, far nicer, funnier one where happy endings are the order of the day" -- Marian Keyes
"Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already" -- Lynne Truss
"The incomparable and timeless genius - perfect for readers of all ages, shapes and sizes!" -- Kate Mosse
"Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists" -- Susan Hill
