Three American sisters leave their chicken farm on Long Island for a holiday in Europe. In France they encounter the charming but penniless Marquis de Maufringneuse, his writer son Jeff, and the Marquis's tough American ex-wife. When they all find themselves together at the exclusive resort of St Rocque -- one of the sisters in search of a husband, the Marquis in search of a fortune, the writer in search of love -- the Wodehousean complications ensue.

As Wodehouse hoped in his introduction, this book is “found worthy to be included in the list of the Best Hundred Books titled 'French Leave'.” Wodehouse’s usual series of mistakes, flubs, gaffes, and general zaniness among the classes, this time set in France, with a French and American cast. Not his best, but far above most modern writing. Very humorous writing. It’ll help you take your thoughts off your troubles as this gaggle of dimbulbs and bamboozlers hurtle along. Recommended.
