Uneasy Money

P. G. Wodehouse

Book Overview: 

Uneasy Money is a romantic comedy that offers light escapism. More romantic but only a little less humorous that his mature works, it tells of the vicissitudes of poor Lord Dawlish, who inherits five million dollars, but becomes a serially disappointed groom.

When the story opens Bill (Lord Dawlish, a thoroughly pleasant man) is engaged to a demanding actress. His first thought when hearing of his massive legacy from a stranger whose tendency to slice he once cured on a West Country golf course is of the disappointed relatives. His trip to the USA attempting to give back the windfall results in complication after complication, including firearms and burglaries as well as the usual human misunderstandings that accompany any human life.

'Nutty, darling, what is it?' cried Elizabeth, every maternal instinct in her aroused.

He was thrusting a sheet of paper at her, a sheet of paper that bore the superscription of Nichols, Nichols, Nichols, and Nichols, with a London address.

'Uncle Ira—' Nutty choked. 'Twenty pounds! He's left me twenty pounds, and all the rest to a—to a man named Dawlish!'

In silence Elizabeth took the letter. It was even as he had said. A few moments before Elizabeth had been regretting the imminent descent of wealth upon her brother. Now she was inconsistent enough to boil with rage at the shattering blow which had befallen him. That she, too, had lost her inheritance hard. . . Read More

I'm so happy I finally discovered Wodehouse! I have never read books published over 100 years ago that are so accessible and not dated at all. Sometimes even timely... I mean....

Others have commented on the plot so I will comment on aspects of this novel that I enjoy. I love books where the main characters are decent and good people, and you cannot find more decent individuals than the hero and heroine of this book. It is also so refreshing to read a story where a woman can

Well done, Plum!

Uneasy Money is a standalone romantic comedy novel from P.G. Wodehouse, which can be regarded as one among his best works with his signature humor and twisted plots. Written in 1916 this is one of those self-containing titles from Wodehouse, which is not part of any of his usual series of narratives
