Picadilly Jim, by P.G. Wodehouse

In most ways this is a typical Wodehouse farce, but it has a unique twist. Imposters are a dime a dozen in Wodehouse, but I've not previously run into a case where a gentleman goes to a country house pretending to be himself, and is terribly afraid lest anyone discover that he really is himself.

No Bertie, no Jeeves, no Blandings; this is yet another fine standalone novel, and it's Wodehouse, which really says all that's necessary.
