About the Author
Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English author. Though he was named after his godfather, the author was not a fan of his name and more commonly went by P.G Wodehouse. Known for his comedic work, Wodehouse created reoccurring characters that became a beloved staple of his literature. Though most of his work was set in London, Wodehouse also spent a fair amount of time in the United States. Much of his work was converted into an "American" version, and he wrote a series of Broadway musicals that helped lead to the development of the American musical. P.G Wodehouse's eclectic and prolific canon of work both in Europe and America developed him to be one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century.
You should read Wodehouse when you re well, and when you re poorly; when you re travelling, and when you re not; when you re feeling clever, and when you re feeling utterly dim. Wodehouse always lifts your spirits, no matter how high they happen to be already. --Lynne Truss"
Wodehouse s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in. --Evelyn Waugh"
Wodehouse is the funniest writer that is, the most resourceful and unflagging deliverer of fun that the human race, a glum crowd, has yet produced. "
