Bill and True Love Conquers all.,
This review is from: Bill the Conqueror (Everyman's Library P G WODEHOUSE) (Hardcover)
Sir George Pyke, founder of the Mammoth Publishing Company, is keen for his son, Roderick, to marry his sister's husband's niece, Felicia who is `sprightly enough to put the stuffing into any man'. Unfortunately Roderick is in love with the stenographer from `Society Spice', which Roderick edits with Wodehouse staple Percy Pilbeam, whilst Felicia holds a candle for her childhood sweetheart Bill West, the titular conqueror.
Meanwhile Bill has been sent to England to investigate by his Uncle, Cooley Paradene, why his London office, managed by Wilfred Slingsby, is failing to make a profit. Bill is accompanied by Judson Corker at the bequest of Alice Corker, sister to Judson and fiancée to Bill. Confused? You should be!
Only Wodehouse could right these and other wrongs in a story spanning the Atlantic, involving theft, kidnap, embezzlement and deceit of ever possible flavour. Wodehouse, Bill and true love conquers all.
