About Book

Book Description
The Little Warrior (published in America as Jill the Reckless) is an early Wodehouse novel, with a precursor of Bertie Wooster in the form of a character named Freddy. The novel also features a stuffed shirt, Derek, and his fiancée, Jill, a (formerly) rich girl whose money has been gambled away at the stock exchange by her guardian uncle. When Derek breaks off their engagement, Jill decides to leave London for America, where she is forced to earn a living as a chorus girl. But all ends well: Freddy marries a chorus girl, Jill marries an author, and Derek goes home in defeat, deserted even by the loyal Freddy. A classic example of early humor by the author of My Man Jeeves. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

Through a gleaming eye-glass he inspected the revolting object which Parker, his faithful man, had placed on a plate before him. "Parker!" His voice had a ring of pain. "Sir?" "What's this?" "Poached egg, sir." Freddie averted his eyes with a silent shudder. "It looks just like an old aunt of mine," he said. "Remove it!" He got up, and, wrapping his dressing-gown about his long legs, took up a stand in front of the fireplace. From this position he surveyed the room, his shoulders against the mantelpiece, his calves pressing the club-fender. It was a cheerful oasis in a chill and foggy world, a typical London bachelor's breakfast-room. The walls were a restful gray, and the table, set for two, a comfortable arrangement in white and silver.
