He was a gossip columnist’s dream. Piccadilly Jim’s life was a collage of broken promises and drunken brawls. And his straight-laced Victorian aunt was not amused. So, she decided to reform him. Unfortunately, her reform project started at a time when Jim had fallen in love and had already decided to reform himself. Thus, life became complicated. Jim pretends to be himself - a beautiful display of Wodehousean logic; hilarious indeed!

As always, P.G. Wodehouse met my expectations. I have read many of his numerous writings, but I love listening, especially when the reader is excellent--as Mr. Davidson is. He understands Wodehouse and his take on humanity. There is nothing like riding down a boring interstate highway, laughing aloud at some absurd name or clever phrase. As always, one wonders how Wodehouse will straighten out the complex mess his plot has created. Magically, by the last page, all is well.
Any of Wodehouse's other works, especially the Jeeves novels.
I admire Mr. Davidson's ability to voice each character, though it is amusing to hear an Englishman attacking different American accents.
Will the real--ANYBODY--please stand up??! Multiple cases of impersonation and role-playing lead to a humorously winding plot.
I would recommend the book because of Wodehouse's descriptions of people. The story is fun.
His hilarious descriptions
He started very annoying (nasally). It got a little but better toward the end.
