QUICK SERVICE by P.G. Wodehouse

England carries on, and Wodehouse too in another whirlwind tale with a plenty of playful pyrotechnics. This is about Joss, who loses his job (advertising hams), falls in love, valets a socially unacceptable, thefts a picture, gets his gal and re-wangles his job in typically involved Wodehousian fashion. A few misplaced identities, good tangential romanticking, and more porcine pother as Joss is in and out of J.B. Duff's Paramount ham business, sailing merrily about under false colors. Manufactured situations don't bother Wodehouse fans, and there is plenty of fun for their enjoyment. Ran in Saturday Evening Post.
