Publisher's Summary

It takes a lot of effort for Jimmy Crocker to become Piccadilly Jim – nights on the town roistering, headlines in the gossip columns, a string of broken hearts and breaches of promise. Eventually he becomes rather good at it and manages to go to pieces with his eyes open. But no sooner has Jimmy cut a wild swathe through fashionable London than his terrifying Aunt Nesta decides he must mend his ways. He then falls in love with the girl he has hurt most of all, and after that things get complicated.

In a dizzying plot, impersonations pile on impersonations so that (for reasons that will become clear, we promise) Jimmy ends up having to pretend he’s himself. Does he deserve a happy ending? Listen and find out.

fast paced and twisty

I listened to this 2x in 2 months! It twists
and turns moreso than his others. Pure fun, remodeled a bathroom first listen, worked a puzzle the second time. Fav character Jim of course!

Delightful P.G.Wodehouse plot & J.Cecil narration

I can warmly recommend this stand-alone novel by P.G. Wodehouse. As a big fan of the Jeeves & Wooster series who made the author familiar to me, I have since looked into more of his works here on Audible. If you are looking for a first book to start your Wodehouse journey with, the begin with this one (or 'Somehing Fresh). Written in a rich and wonderfully witty language, the plot builds up and thinkens all the way, while Jonathan Cecil manages once again to bring all the characters to life with his various voices and dialects. This one can be enjoyed many times over.
