The Adventures of Sally by P. G. Wodehouse is a novel about a young, pretty, and popular American woman who lives in a boarding house in New York and works as a taxi dancer. At her twenty-first birthday, she inherits a fortune. Excerpt from the book: "Sally looked contentedly down the long table. She felt happy at last. Everybody was talking and laughing now, and her party, rallying after an uncertain start, was plainly the success she had hoped it would be. The first atmosphere of uncomfortable restraint, caused, she was only too well aware, by her brother Fillmore's white evening waistcoat, had worn off; and the male and female patrons of Mrs. Meecher's select boarding-house (transient and residential) were themselves again. At her end of the table the conversation had turned once more to the great vital topic of Sally's legacy and what she ought to do with it." Sally tries to adjust to her new life, but financial and romantic problems beset her until a happy ending ensues. Artist Bio Author: Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English author and one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century.
