Lord Dawlish is a well-liked and generous man. But he is poor, the poorest of his rank in the British Isles. His fiancée will not marry a man of modest means, so Dawlish decides to make his fortune any way possible. Romance, golf, the theater, and mad monkeys are all part of this merry mix-up that has more witty remarks and sharp retorts in one minute than most people could dream up in a lifetime.

Long time Wodehouse fan. I've listened to many narrators of his work and Nigel lambert is my favorite. This book has many of the typical Wodehouse plot lines but as a country living and bee keeping person I can particularly relate to this one. Wodehouse subtle humor and great use of descriptive language as great in this book as any I've read (which is most of his work). Nothing like forgetting the hustle and bustle and crude humor that passes for entertainment today and dwelling in the intellectual polite innocent and very funny world Wodehouse creates for us. Three cheers and pip pip.
