About the Book

By P. G. Wodehouse, there is a book called Indiscretions of Archie. Englishman Archie Moffam lives in New York. He has a kind heart but a limited, if not nonexistent, cerebral capacity, much like Bertie Wooster. He does not have a private income, unlike Bertie. He was a First World War soldier. While visiting New York, he harshly criticizes the staff of the Cosmopolis Hotel, turning Daniel Brewster, the hotel's owner, against him. He meets, falls in love with, and weds Lucille, Brewster's daughter, on a subsequent trip to Miami. Brewster does not feel happy. Archie's attempts to atone for his wrongdoing by getting a job and buying Brewster a pricey piece of art fail miserably. Archie continues to engage in inappropriate behavior.
In addition to helping "The Sausage Chappie," an old wartime friend who has lost his memory and forgotten his own identity, he offers advice to Bill, Lucille's brother, who frequently dates women his father disapproves of. He irritates Mrs. Cora Bates McCall, a vegetarian and proponent of good eating, by convincing her son to participate in a pie-eating competition. A further incident with an artwork further angers Brewster. He eventually appeases the elderly snob by informing him that he is soon to become a grandfather.
