This short novel was adapted by Wodehouse from his play "Good Morning, Bill", which had been based on a play by the Hungarian playwright Ladislaus Fodor. It is a brief piece in two distinct acts. In the first, Bill Bannister, having given his uncle the slip while on holiday, has been getting to know Lottie Higginbotham, an ex-wife of his old friend Lord Tidmouth. Then, he meets and falls in love with golf-loving Doctor Sally Smith. The second act is set at Bannister's country home, to which he has called Doctor Sally while pretending to be ill. Unbeknownst to him, his uncle believes Bill still to be enamoured of XX, and has secretly invited her to stay, hoping that Bill will realise his feelings are nothing more than an infatuation. Cue lots of comical misunderstandings and much verbal felicity.
Although laid-out as a novel, the story has few characters and little in the way of scene-setting. The complex plots full of labyrinthine twists and multiple entanglements which we expect from Wodehouse are conspicuously lacking here. What we are left with is the customary verbal dexterity and bright wit. Far too slight to stand comparison with Wodehouse's more substantial works, this is a minor gem, but a gem nonetheless.
