Product Details


A U.S. senator, his beautiful daughter, an English aristocrat, a safecracker from Chicago, a Yale football hero posing as a French viscount, an American con man pretending to be a duke, a Bloomsbury novelist acting as a valet, an undercover detective, among others, converge on a French chateau in Wodehouse's 1932 farce. At stake are some diamonds that at least two criminals are after, an incriminating letter exposing the senator's hypocrisy, and, naturally, the course of true love. The romantic entanglements of several couples are altered before things are sorted out. Written when the author was at the height of his powers, Hot Water matches the best of the Bertie Wooster novels in delivering pleasure. Called upon to create a wide range of accents, mostly American, Jonathan Cecil, as always, is delightful. Highly recommended.-Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr.
