Product Description

A penniless Englishman falls in love with a lively American girl, loses her, finds her again, is rejected, but finally discovers true love after many comic adventures. In Barmy in Wonderland, this classic plot of 1920s musical comedy, so familiar to Wodehouse from his own stage works, becomes the basis for a brilliant satire on theatrical life. Featuring monstrous producers, vain film stars, impossible critics, temperamental actresses and a whole chorus of sharply drawn minor parts, this is one of Wodehouse's most enticing later novels.

In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books, twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.

Praise for the Work of P.G. Wodehouse
“Wodehouse is the greatest comic writer ever.” —Douglas Adams

“Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own.”—Evelyn Waugh
