When Jimmy Pitt bets an actor friend that any fool could burgle a house, offering to demonstrate the feat that very night, he puts his reputation on the line. He hires the services of a professional burglar, but his difficulties are increased when he has the misfortune to select police captain McEachern’s house for the burglary. And imagine Jimmy’s consternation when he learns that Captain McEachern’s daughter is none other than the beautiful Molly, whom he has worshipped from afar for quite some time. From New York, the action of the story moves to Dreever Castle in Shropshire, England, where Jimmy’s bird comes home to roost—with a vengeance. Filled with the sights, smells, and sounds of rural England, A Gentleman of Leisure contains all the wit and humor we have come to expect from the inimitable P. G. Wodehouse.

Author Bio: P. G. Wodehouse

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881–1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics, and numerous pieces of journalism. He was highly popular throughout a career that lasted more than seventy years, and his many writings continue to be widely read. He is best known for his novels and short stories of Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves and for his settings of English upper-class society of the pre– and post–World War I era. He lived in several countries before settling in the United States after World War II. During the 1920s, he collaborated with Broadway legends like Cole Porter and George Gershwin on musicals and, in the 1930s, expanded his repertoire by writing for motion pictures. He was honored with a knighthood in 1975.
