P.G. Wodehouse: A Life in Letters Paperback / softback

Edited by Sophie Ratcliffe

Paperback / softback

Description

'Wodehouse said letters make "a wonderful oblique form for an autobiography," and Sophie Ratcliffe's expertly edited collection amply proves the point.'SpectatorOne of the funniest and most admired writers of the twentieth century, P.

G. Wodehouse always shied away from the idea of a biography.

A quiet, retiring man, he expressed himself through the written word.

His letters - collected here - provide an illuminating biographical accompaniment to legendary comic creations such as Jeeves, Wooster, Psmith and the Empress of Blandings.

This is a book every lover of Wodehouse will want to possess. 'The letters, gossipy in the kindliest, amused/bemused manner, bear true witness to the wide-ranging influences on Wodehouse's' best-known novels and best-loved characters.'The Times
