A Gentleman of Leisure, by P. G. Wodehouse (1881 - 1975)

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/a-gentleman-of-leisure-by-p-g-wodehouse/

Volunteers outside the USA: P. G. Wodehouse died in 1975. This person's work may still be protected by copyright in countries where copyright duration is determined by the author's death date. In Europe this is 70 years; in Canada it is 50 years; and in Australia it is 70 years for authors who died after 1955.
A wealthy, love-sick bachelor, crooks, and card-sharps ensconced in an English castle make for a classic Wodehousian comedy of star-crossed lovers, imposters and stolen jewels. It all gets a bit thick, what? (Summary by Mark Nelson)
Source text (please read only from this text!): https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/65172

Target completion date: 2021-06-30

Prooflistening level: Standard
Prospective PLs, please see the Guide for Proof-listeners.

IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the number of languishing projects on our server, we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't recorded anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).

Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process unless you are the BC or PL. Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Both PL OK!

Strange to hear Wodehouse writing about America. You're doing a great job!

Chapters 3 & 4 in.

Actually, PGW wrote a lot about New York. During WWI (he was already too old for service) he was in NY writing stage musicals. He moved to France in the 1930's for tax reasons, got captured by the Germans when they invaded and forced to make propaganda, for which the Brits branded him a traitor. Once released, he moved back to the US and never returned to England. He lived longer in the US than he ever did in England.
