Publisher's Summary

Jimmy Crocker, a.k.a. Piccadilly Jim, is a lively young American ex-newspaper man who meets Ann Chester, the girl of his dreams, in London. Problem is, Jim once wrote a bad review of her first book of poetry. They set sail to New York together with Ann still not knowing he's the dastardly critic! Add a brilliantly colourful Manhattan setting, an unlikely butler, odd spies, eccentric 'tecs, scientific secrets, plus an odious boy called Ogden, and the ingredients are here for one of P.G. Wodehouse's most dazzlingly comic feasts.

Wonderfully funny listening that keeps up a swift pace, thanks to the classic combination of Martin Jarvis reading Britain's finest comic writer, P.G. Wodehouse.

    "New Wodehouse characters and a very good story"

    Another great story from the incomparable Wodehouse, a new set of intriguing characters, getting themselves in unlikely muddles and brought to life so well by Martin Jarvis. You can foresee the disasters coming, but as you can be sure it will all work out happily in the end, relax and enjoy with a gentle smile on your face.

    "I really enjoyed this one"

    I first listened to Leave it to Psmith and liked it. I liked this one even more. For anyone that likes the writing style of Wodehouse you'll like this one.

    "Wodehouse and Jarvis: The perfect combination"

    You simply cannot go wrong with Wodehouse and a narrator like Martin Jarvis. I would go ahead and say that Jarvis is the definitive narrator for Wodehouse. Piccadilly Jim is a great example of this. Brimming with wit and narrated with equal aplomb, this is a marvellous audiobook. A true must-have.

    "Laugh Till The End!!!"

    My first with PG Wodehouse and surprise it's one of the Classic literatures. But it doesn't stop me to love the story so funny and full of adventure.
    I love to venture another PG Wodehouse's works available at Audible.
