I only heard about this recently, so had somehow managed to trick myself into believing that it had only been written recently as well. Knowing that it was originally written in 1938 actually puts quite a different spin on it - for the better. I had wondered how historically accurate it was, but knowing that it was written at about the same time as it's supposed to take place would indicate that it is.

It's a charming story, if perhaps somewhat unbelievable that so many things could happen to a person in just one day. Made for a very entertaining listen though.
