PG Wodehouse. He's so witty!

This book is heavier on plot and lighter on simile than most of the Wodehouse books I've read. It's still highly amusing. Sally's fortunes take a roller-coaster ride, and she has three suitors to deal with, becoming engaged to each at some point. Much of the action involves the production of a Broadway play, which Wodehouse knew well. My husband and I particularly got a chuckle from the line:
"One of the chief articles of faith in the creed of all theatrical producers is that if anything goes wrong it must be the fault of the assistant stage manager." (He's frequently the assistant stage manager for a local G&S company.)
