This rollicking semi-autobiographical novel weaves a tale of Wodehouse's early days as a writer, romance gone awry, and the colorful characters he encountered. James Orlebar Cloyster, in order to marry his true love, embarks on a scheme of such clever deception that he very nearly manages to ruin both his romance and his career. Told from multiple viewpoints-that of James, his fiancee, and friends-Not George Washington lampoons London society, literary pretension, the West End stage, playwrights, playgoers, bohemian life, and the newspapers of the day.
