George is a music writer for several successful plays and Maud hops into his cab in Piccadilly to avoid seeing her brother who thinks she is back home in the country, rather than in London. George falls in love with Maud, but Maud is in love with an American she met in Wales last summer. All the while, her family wants her to marry Reggie who is love with his uncle’s secretary. This confusing set of circumstances all gets sorted out by the end in this comedy by Wodehouse. No one is better at poking fun at the upper classes while untangling a mass of miscommunication and chaos than Wodehouse is and I literally laughed out loud several times while reading this book.
