The story tells of how unscrupulous millionaire Benjamin Scobell decides to build a casino on the small Mediterranean island of Mervo, dragging in the unwitting heir to the throne to help. Little does he know that his stepdaughter Betty has history with the young man John Maude, and his schemes lead to a rift between the newly reunited pair.

About the Author:

P. G. Wodehouse (1881 1975) spent much of his life in Southampton, New York, but was born in England and educated in Surrey. He became an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than seventy years, he published more than ninety books and twenty film scripts, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies.

Review:

“To open almost any of Wodehouse’s books is to open a door into endless summer.”
- Michael Dirda, The Wall Street Journal

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

“Handsome, affordable hardcover editions . . . Wodehouse is an anodyne to annoyances. He’s a tonic for those suffering from bearable but burdensome loads of boredom, from jadedness of outlook and dinginess of soul.”
- The New Yorker

“Could a P. G. Wodehouse revival be more timely? Overlook Press, which is reissuing Wodehouse’s comic novels, clearly has its finger on America’s pulse. . . . With its sumptuously bound editions, Overlook Press has done the master proud.”
- Los Angeles Times

“Wodehouse’s novels are the very definition of British humor―bubblingly witty and dryly loony. And as Overlook continues its reissue of these absurd souffles, you can buy the work for yourself in suave hardcover volumes, the dust jackets as natty as the prose.”
- Entertainment Weekly

“The volumes of the Collector’s Wodehouse are fine indeed. . . . I am hard-pressed to think of a recent publishing project as ambitious and successful as this one.”
- The Washington Post
