Wodehouse, P.G.: Piccadilly Jim. v2 26 Sep 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.
Any kind of feedback is welcome.
EDIT (v2): Updated to support the epub2pdf script.
