The Luck of the Bodkins

The Luck of the Bodkins

"The Luck of the Bodkins" is a novel by P.G. Wodehouse, first published in the United Kingdom on October 11, 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and in the United States on January 3, 1936 by Little, Brown and Company, Boston.

The story concerns amiable young Drone Monty Bodkin, the nephew of Sir Gregory Parsloe-Parsloe who was for a time one of Lord Emsworth's many secretaries (in "Heavy Weather" (1933)), and his complicated love life.

Monty, the object of his affections, hockey-playing Gertrude Butterwick, and movie-mogul Ivor Llewellyn would all return in "Pearls, Girls and Monty Bodkin" (1972).
