The Adventures of Sally - P.G. Wodehouse

The Adventures of Sally - P.G. Wodehouse

Carrying on with a theme of “books set in a time that never really existed” we have here a comedy which gives passing mention to the Spanish Flu and therefore would have to be set between 1917 and 1922, but which avoids any reference to the recent war. There’s a boarding house full of characters, and scrappy young things trying to make it on Broadway, and chaps who aren’t good at investing, but aren’t too distraught at being broke, and snobby aristocratic relatives. It’s all rather jolly and I would assume deliberately avoiding anything to grim or serious. A century on it continues to be diverting and pleasant.
