Monty Bodkin returns home to England after a year in America, his absence having strengthened his resolve to claim the hand in marriage of his intended, the hockey-playing Gertrude Butterwick. However, his association with an overweight Hollywood movie mogul, his redoubtable wife and even more formidable step-daughter sets the scene for complications. Add to this pot-pourri the piquant seasonings of a third-rate private detective, a devious pair of confidence tricksters and a string of pearls, and the course of true love certainly won't run smoothly for Monty...

Biographie de Pelham Grenville Wodehouse

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born in 1881 in Guildford, the son of a civil servant, and educated at Dulwich College. He spent a brief period working for the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank before abandoning finance for writing, earning a living by journalism and selling stories to magazines. An enormously popular and prolific writer, he produced about a hundred books. Probably best known for Jeeves, the ever resourceful' gentleman's personal gentleman', and the good-hearted young blunderer Bertie Wooster, Wodehouse created many other comic figures, notably Lord Emsworth, the Hon.
Galahad Threepwood, Psmith and the numerous members of the Drones Club. He was part-author and writer of fifteen straight plays and of a 250 lyrics for some thirty musical comedies. The Times hailed him as a comic genius recognized in his lifetime as a classic and an old master of farce. P. G. Wodehouse said, I believe there are two ways of writing novels. One is mine, making a sort of musical comedy without music and ignoring real life altogether; the other is going right deep down into life and net caring a damn. Wodehouse married in 1914 and took American citizenship in 1955.
He was created a Knight of the British Empire in the 1975 New Year's Honours List. In a BBC interview he said that he had no ambitions left now that he had been knighted and there was a waxwork of him in Madame Tussauds. He died on St Valentine's Day, 1975, at the age of ninety-three.
