Summary

This rollicking semi-autobiographical novel weaves a tale of Wodehouse's early days as a writer, romance gone awry, and the colorful characters he encountered.

James Orlebar Cloyster, in order to marry his true love, embarks on a scheme of such clever deception that he very nearly manages to ruin both his romance and his career. Told from multiple viewpoints - that of James, his fiancée, and friends - Not George Washington lampoons London society, literary pretension, the West End stage, playwrights, playgoers, bohemian life, and the newspapers of the day.

Great Book - Horrible Recording

Writing is great. Narration is good. Recording is the worst I've ever heard. Crackles and hissing would be fine - I've never been picky about sound quality. This has very frequent skipping where many words are missing. It could be whole sentences missing - it's hard to tell. There are authors where this would be less destructive of the story, but a Wodehouse book is about the beauty of the language and phrasing.
