Laughing Gas Hardback
Part of the Everyman's Library P G Wodehouse series
A Hollywood star and an English aristocrat exchange souls while under ether at the dentist and the result is mayhem.
Though his golden curls and sweet expression make him the idol of mothers throughout America, Joey Cooley is a tough nut who wants nothing more than to revenge himself on the agents, directors and producers who make his life a misery, before escaping back to Ohio.
When his soul is transplanted into the body of an English earl with a boxing Blue he has the chance to 'poke them all in the snoot'.
Lord Havershot, meanwhile, finds himself under the thumb of the fierce Miss Brinkmeyer and terrorized by the boy stars Joey has supplanted.
The result is Anglo-American farce with the lightest of touches.
