A Gentleman Of Leisure, Hardback Book

A Gentleman Of Leisure Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library P G WODEHOUSE series

Hardback

Description

In this comic novel - dedicated to Douglas Fairbanks, who starred in the stage version - Jimmy Pitt, man-about-town and former newspaper hound, takes a bet that he cannot commit burglary.

He finds breaking and entering easy enough, but then discovers that he has forced his way into the home of a tough New York policeman.

Naturally, Captain McEachern has a beautiful daughter and problems of his own.

The complications which ensue from their meeting, involving a rich cast of Wodehousean characters from both sides of the Atlantic, create one of his most amusing and light-hearted early novels.
