Jimmy Crocker, a.k.a. Piccadilly Jim, is a lively young American ex-newspaper man who meets Ann Chester, the girl of his dreams, in London. Problem is, Jim once wrote a bad review of her first book of poetry. They set sail to New York together with Ann still not knowing he's the dastardly critic! Add a brilliantly colourful Manhattan setting, an unlikely butler, odd spies, eccentric 'tecs, scientific secrets, plus an odious boy called Ogden, and the ingredients are here for one of P.G. Wodehouse's most dazzlingly comic feasts. Wonderfully funny listening that keeps up a swift pace, thanks to the classic combination of Martin Jarvis reading Britain's finest comic writer, P.G. Wodehouse.More

Martin Jarvis as narrator is an inspired choice, easily my favourite actor for reading PGW. He brings the words to life with such evident enjoyment, giving each character an accent so finely tuned to their own idiosyncrasies you are never lost in this dense plot of intrigue and counter intrigue. Piccadilly Jim is a comic classic with many unlikely escapades to keep the reader highly entertained
The plot is constantly delivering new trips and twists to keep the action flowing
He is a master of comic accent, his Americans are particularly fun and well realised.
Theoretically you could, and I might do on second and third sittings in future.
