This is the sixth printing of 'Hot Water' as on the copyright page it reads 'Sixth printing completing 59,007 copies. Eileen McIlvaine in 'P.G Wodehouse a Comprehensive Bibliography and Checklist' suggests this edition was published in 1940. Château Blissac pleases everyone expect for the current occupier, J. Wellington Gedge. While Mrs Gedge believes that Mr Gedge should become American Ambassador to Paris, he wants the more relaxed life of a Californian. Their differing values are bound to cause a comedic conflict; with the P.G. Wodehouse website stating that 'the heady atmosphere of France in the 1930s makes for one of Wodehouse's most delightful comedies.'. Item #65029
