About the Author
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (P.
Wodehouse) was an English humorist and writer best known for his Jeeves and Blandings Castle novels.
Educated at boarding schools, Wodehouse turned to writing at a young age, demonstrating great skill at humorous sketches and musical lyrics.
He continued to write part-time while pursuing, at the behest of his father, a career in banking, and successfully contributed numerous pieces to Punch, Vanity Fair, and The Daily Express, among other publications.
In addition to his literary work, Wodehouse was incorporated into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in recognition of his collaboration with Cole Porter on Anything Goes, his lyrics to the song Bill from Show Boat, and his work on the musicals Rosalie and The Three Musketeers.While interned along with other British citizens in Germany during the Second World War, Wodehouse made a series of radio broadcasts for which he was accused of being a collaborator; and, although later cleared of the charges, he never returned to England.
His work has influenced many other writers including Evelyn Waugh, Rudyard Kipling, J.
Rowling, and John Le Carr?.
Wodehouse died in 1975 at the age of 93.
When Maud Marshmoreton throws herself unexpectedly into George Bevan's cab in London, he falls instantly in love with her.
However, Maud is in love with a mysterious American she met in Wales.
Maud's aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, wants Maud to marry her stepson, Reggie.
But Reggie is in love with his father's secretary, Alice.
When George turns up at the Marshmoreton estate with an American accent, confusion ensues.
Jonathan Cecil reads this comic tale of mistaken identity and love triangles with humor and impeccable timing.
Although the American accents are sometimes wobbly, the British actor has the perfect rhythmic cadence to bring this cheery British trifle to life.
