The novel is narrated by Jeremy Garnet, an author and old friend of Stanley Featherstonehaugh Ukridge. He is a schemer who will do anything to increase his funding—except, of course, work. An alert and creative opportunist, he makes sure that no kindness shown to him, however small, will go unexploited for financial gain. Seeing Ukridge for the first time in years, with a new wife in tow, Garnet finds himself dragged along on holiday to Ukridge's new chicken farm in Dorset. The novel intertwines Garnet's difficult wooing of a girl living nearby with the struggles of the farm, which are exacerbated by Ukridge's bizarre business ideas and methods.
