Post Wodehouse, P.G.: Piccadilly Jim. v1 17 Aug 2009

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was a popular English comic writer. His books are usually set around pre-war upper-class English society.

After "The Little Nugget", we encounter again the overfed boy Ogden in "Piccadilly Jim" (1917). Jimmy Crocker (the step-son of Ogden's aunt) is a sort of playboy who decides to change his life after meeting a girl in London. The rest of the story is typical Wodehouse, with people pretending to be different people, a secret explosive, a kidnapping plan, and lots of fresh humour.

While I was reading it I thought that it's a good story for a movie... and it appears there are already three of them

I created this version from the PG text, proofread and corrected. I added curly quotes, a TOC, some formatting, etc., and created the book with mobiperl.

Any kind of feedback is welcome.

All in due time... Note that most Jeeves is not public domain anywhere.

Jeeves appears in "The Man with Two Left Feet", which I have already uploaded
