Ice in the Bedroom

Ice in the Bedroom

"Ice in the Bedroom" is a novel by P.G. Wodehouse, first published in the United States (where the title was "The Ice in the Bedroom") on February 2 1961 by Simon & Schuster, Inc., New York, and in the United Kingdom on October 15 1961 by Herbert Jenkins, London.

It features several well-known Wodehouse characters, including Drones Freddie Widgeon and Oofy Prosser, and criminal gang Alexander "Chimp" Twist, Thomas "Soapy" Molloy and Dora "Dolly" Molloy. Freddie is trying to escape a dull work in a London office to become the owner of a coffee plantation in Kenya and marry Sally Foster at the same time. Some jewelry, hidden at the neighbour of Freddie, is playing an important part in the novel as the criminals are trying to get hold of it by all means. Most of the plot takes place in the normally quiet suburb named Valley Fields.
