In order to win the woman of his dreams Cyril Barmy Fotheringay Phipps invests ten thousand dollars into a stinker of a play to be close to her Will he ever see any of his money back and win his woman's heartThat PG Wodehouse is a sly one Just as he managed to make golf interesting in The Clicking of Cuthbert he managed to make me care about theater with Barmy in WonderlandBarmy in Wonderland features a few of the usual Wodehouse plot devices You get the budding love between Barmy and Eileen Dinty Moore the broken engagement between Mervyn Potter and his love and hilarious drunken escapades featuring Potter and PhippsIt's amazing how many interesting characters Wodehouse creates and then never uses again To the best of my knowledge Barmy a member of the fabled Drones Club is the only one who appears in other stories It's a shame too Dinty Moore is strong female lead like many of Wodehouse's women Mervyn Potter that hilarious drunken bastard could have easily spawned stories on his own I even enjoyed the two sleazy play producers Lehman and McClureOh and I should mention my favorite line before I wrap this up She was so tight she could carry an armload of eels up five flights of stairs and not drop a single oneAs usual everything works out in the end as it normally does in Wodehouseland The joy is in the journey not the destination While this one isn't my favorite Wodehouse or even close it's still hilarious and an easy three

Barmy in WonderlandTo enrich the Broadway theatrical sceneBut while Barmy was rising his hat to Gypsy Sybill fate was aiming a nasty jolt at the solar plex. This is a uirky Wodehouse that takes place in the world of American theater rather than English castles PG had co written any number of plays with notable lights of the theatrical scribe community He was often the story guy to the song guys and did uite well Over time theater changed while Wodehouse stayed largely the same His play writing career ran for roughly 25 years and mostly ending by the mid 1930s Thankfully for his fans this left time to pen the hundredish books that he left as his primary legacy In the early 1950s Wodehouse started mulling his theatrical successes In the summer of 1952 Wodehouse and Guy Bolton co wrote Carry On Jeeves which was PG's last attempt at writing for the stage In 1953 he wrote Bring on the Girls a biography about his theater years It was probably Barmy in Wonderland aka Angel Cake which was largely finished by the summer of 1951 that inspired these later effortsThis novel is pleasant read that feels significantly dated than most of the Wodehouse books from his prime JW and Blandings novels seem to float on a fairly timeless ether but Barmy is a historical look at a very distinct time and place in New York theater that has long vanished The early part of the book flows nicely in the Wodehouse stream of pleasant prose but when the actual theater world ensnares Barmy the book becomes less of a joy To be fair there are some wonderful bits of wordplay and description including a well drawn lawyer which make even the dull theater bits and the telegraphed ending worth reading

What a fantastic title The book was very good and very funny but definitely not my favorite Wodehouse ever This book is about Barmy Fotheringay Phipps one of Bertie Wooster's pals from the Drones Club Old Barmy ends up investing all his money in a stinker of a Broadway show just to be near a girl he falls in love with after meeting her briefly on the sidewalk Typical of Wodehouse there are many complications and laughs and it all works out in the end I just like it when things are confusing in a funny way and then it all works out in the end If I could take on the problems of a Wodehouse character I'd do it in a heartbeat
