About the Author:

P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881. He is the creator of Jeeves, Blandings Castle, Psmith, Ukridge, Uncle Fred and Mr Mulliner stories and novels.

From AudioFile:

One of the tests of a Wodehouse recording is whether the laughs for the listener come from the comic ingenuity of the text, as well as from the comic impersonations of the reader. Though HOT WATER (1932) features none of the familiar series characters from the Wodehouse books, Jonathan Cecil is such an accomplished, versatile Wodehouse reader he can still be consistently funny in performing this collection of goofs. This time the cast includes an American couple with more jewels than brains, a blustery senator, mismatched lovers, a Bloomsbury novelist, a French playboy, and various safecrackers and con men (with designs on the jewels of the rich American wife). The listening experience is an entertaining collaboration of writer and reader. G.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This is a P.G. Wodehouse novel. Chateau Blissac, on its hill above St Roque, is in a setting where every prospect pleases. But it doesn t please its current occupier, J. Wellington Gedge. Mr Gedge wants none of it - and particularly none of the domineering Mrs Gedge s imperious wish that he should become American Ambassador to Paris. Instead he pines for the simpler life of California, where men are men and filling stations stand tall. Mrs Gedge has powerful allies - including the prohibitionist Senator Opal. But will she get her way? And will the Senator s delightful daughter Jane get her man? In a plot which involves safe-blowers, con men, jewel-thieves and even a Bloomsbury novelist, few are quite as they seem. But the heady atmosphere of France in the 1930s makes for one of Wodehouse s most delightful comedies. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099514152
