The silly ass Englishman, Eton and Oxford, in America during Prohibition,
married to the daughter of an American millionaire. Hardly a novel. A
stitching together of a series of episodes which started as short stories.
An ex-bankrupt who has married Lucille Brewster without her father's
knowledge and coming to seek his blessing, Archie has a row with the
manager of the Hotel Cosmopolis in New York and finds that he is the
proprietor, also his father-in-law. A bad start, but at the end Daniel
Brewster accepts his daughter's marriage, and even her husband, because
they are going to make him a grandfather.
In Chapter 12 there is a very good, long newspaper report of a pie-eating
contest in verse.
