Book Note: P.G. Wodehouse, The Adventures of Sally

I read this book about 27-Nov-2008. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 1922. This note was last modified Thursday, 04-Dec-2008 19:08:33 PST.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


Neither Jeeves nor a school book, this time; but a small-scale American heiress dealing with three suitors, and ending up very happy. Several trips across the Atlanatic, and action in France and London, but mostly in New York.

Sally mostly seems fairly sensible (even though she has friends involved in the theater). Although her emotional state wanders some, and I think she's unaware of a lot of her feelings (we certainly are kept unaware, but I think she is too).

It seems weird to me that I can't find the shadow of the Great War hanging over this anywhere; especially with people from England and all. I guess the Roaring Twenties were about denial, largely of that.
