Piccadilly Jim Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
It takes a lot of effort for Jimmy Crocker to become Piccadilly Jim – nights on the town roistering, headlines in the gossip columns, a string of broken hearts and breaches of promise. Eventually he becomes rather good at it and manages to go to pieces with his eyes open. But no sooner has Jimmy cut a wild swathe through fashionable London than his terrifying Aunt Nesta decides he must mend his ways. He then falls in love with the girl he has hurt most of all, and after that things get complicated.
In a dizzying plot, impersonations pile on impersonations so that (for reasons that will become clear, we promise) Jimmy ends up having to pretend he’s himself. Does he deserve a happy ending? Listen and find out.

Leave It to Psmith, The Inimitable Jeeves or Summer Lightning are my suggested entry stories.
Piccidilly Jim is a wastrel stepson of a socialite. He needs to escape from his folly. He runs into a girl who hates him for some reason. She needs someone to pretend he is himself. He volunteers for the job.
At the end of the story he finds out that when he was a reporter he savagely and cruelly reviewed a book of poems, which explains her hatred. But he manages to show her that they both have outgrown what they were years ago
