Hoping for better prospects, he comes to the United States and visits some friends of his family. On the trip he meets--and promptly marries--Lucille Brewster, the daughter of a wealthy New York hotel owner. The young couple stays at the hotel wihile Archie looks for work.
Neither Archie nor his father-in-law knows what exactly Lucille sees in Archie. Readers wonder too, since Archie is not an intellectual giant and seems to be going nowhere in particular in life.
But as the book proceeds, we find that Archie has some fine qualities. He is outgoing and kind hearted , totally devoted to his wife, and quick to lend assistance to others. Among those he helps are a fellow veteran who, because of a war injury, cannot remember his name or anything that happened to him before the war.
There are lots of grim books about war veterans struggling to adjust to civilian life. This, of course, is not one of them. Rather than a chronicle of PTSD, it is a classic sitcom. Laughter may have been what people needed most of all after the First World War. We can still use some now.
So, if you are new to Wodehouse, this book is a decent place to start, but you would be better off tracking down one of the Bertie and Jeeves books. If you have read a lot of Wodehouse, then you know what to expect with this book and will find it well worth reading.
