Poor Archie! Trying to win his stern old father-in-law over, only to land himself in deeper trouble! Getting locked out of his artist friends apartment in a scarlet bathrobe, and many more such money-making schemes gone haywire, including those to get his f-in-laws approval. The portrait gone awry, and the shoes left outside the door.... Oh no! Im not going to tell you anymore, you just must read this, and youll find yourself laughing uncontrollably wondering how you ever thought the world was a drab place! With Wodehouse, there is always laughter in the world!

In addition to an avid enjoyment of the Drones, Jeeves, golf, and Mulliner tales, I find I am developing a marked taste for Wodehouses light novels. Everything he touches, it seems, turns to laughter. Other places the commedia del arte takes place in motion picture studios, on cruise ships, at resorts on the French Riviera, but here the venue is the Hotel Cosmopolis, drawn, no doubt, from his observations of New York nightlife. And heres Archie, a good-hearted, bumbling Brit out to seek his fortune in the colonies. And of course he met a girl while vacationing. And of course shes a millionaires daughter. And of course said millionaire is proprietor of said hotel. Does it sound like a formula? Right ho! a formula for fun.

This book introduces one of Wodehouses best heroines, Lucille, as the power behind the throne of the Lucy/Archie axis, together pitted against her anti-Archie father. How can you not order it?
