Publisher's Summary

When Maud Marsh flings herself into George Bevan's cab in Piccadilly, he starts believing in damsels in distress. George traces his mysterious travelling companion to Belpher Castle, home of Lord Marshmoreton, where things become severely muddled. Maud's aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, wants Maud to marry Reddie, her stepson. Maud, meanwhile, is known to be in love with an unknown American she met in Wales. So when George turns up speaking American, a nasty case of mistaken identity breaks out. In fact the scene is set for the perfect Wodehouse comedy of errors.

More than Jeeves

Many people know little more than the Jeeves and Wooster stories by P. G. Wodehouse.

This is as good a place as any to start exploring his other stories.

It has the same basic plotlines that are so well loved and the same cast of colourful and eccentric characters.

The quality is superb, narration spot on..............

Buy it and you won't be disappointed.

Confident, mesmeric and inimitable

Would you listen to A Damsel in Distress again? Why?

I am a Wodehouse fan and there are very few of his stores that haven't thoroughly enjoyed. Whilst this may not be one of his best it's still very, very good. The typical thread of circumstances, characters' single-mindedness and downright tomfoolery lead the novel through catastrophe, plotting and delight. The course of true love, in the Wodehouse world, never runs smoothly.

Any additional comments?

Jonathan Cecil is one of the best performers of Wodehouse novels. He managers to really engage the listener and his ability to conjure up the characters personalities vocally is astounding.
