Wodehouse (Life & Times) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English humorist who wrote novels, short stories, plays, lyrics, and essays, all with the same light touch of gentle satire. He charmed twentieth-century readers with his delightful tales recounting the bunglings of his endearing aristocrats, most famously his aristocratic gentleman Bertie Wooster and his cunning manservant, Jeeves.Born in England, Wodehouse moved to France in 1934. He was captured and interned by the Germans from 1940 to 1941, after which he made five radio broadcasts to America, which caused British critics to suggest that he was a traitor to his native country. Wodehouse returned to America, gained citizenship in 1955, and lived there with his wife until his death, twenty years later.
