How can Jimmy convince Molly’s pugnacious father that he is not, in fact, a professional burglar? P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

Well-to-do Jimmy broke into a house on a bet. He got help from Spike Mullins, a penny larcenist who happened to be burgling Jimmy. Together, they broke into the house of the grafting police captain, Mr. McEchern, who coincidentally was the father of the girl Jimmy had been smitten with on his recent steam ship travels. 

A year later, Jimmy is in London, and is invited to stay at the country estate of Lord Dreever, a penniless noble with a moneyed and intimidating aunt and uncle. Due to an oversight, Jimmy must walk from the train station to the estate, and who should he meet on his way but Molly McEchern, the very girl who had so impressed him on the steamship, and whose father’s house he had bunglingly burgled.

A year of globe-trotting can’t cure Jimmy’s curious affliction. Will he ever get the remarkable girl from the steamer out of his head? P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. 

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. 

We’ve had a few folks become supporters! Thank you so much to all our new and returning supporters who chipped in this week. However, we still have a long way to go.

Last week, we met Jimmy, who had just returned to America from England, and was smitten with a girl he met, kind of. Their eyes met, but they never spoke. On returning to New York, Jimmy’s flat was broken into by Spike Mullins, who Jimmy took a liking to. Spike and Jimmy then broke into the home of Mr. McEchern, the grafting chief of police, and the father to the enigmatic girl Jimmy saw on the steamer.

Everyone says that Jimmy is the same jolly chap as ever, even after coming into money. So why does he agree to break into a house? P.G. Wodehouse, today on The Classic Tales Podcast. 

Welcome to The Classic Tales Podcast. Thank you for listening. 

Well, I hate to say it, I mean I really hate to say it, but we’ll be suspending the vintage episodes for a bit. Right now, it’s too cost prohibitive. But here’s what I’d like to do about it: 

If we get enough new supporters, we can start it up again. So please go to http://classictalesaudiobooks.com and become a supporter for $5 a month. We’ll send you a coupon code every month for $8 off any audiobook order, and hopefully we’ll be back with more vintage episodes before you know it. 

Today’s story is a standalone Wodehouse title. It’s not part of a series, and like a lot of his books, contains both American and British characters. I hope you like it. 

I particularly enjoy his reference to Arsène Lupin. Keep an ear open for it!
