Who has not come to know and love Jeeves and Wooster, Lord Emsworth, Ukridge and Psmith and the chorus of Wooster aunts? Their creator, Sir Pelham Greville Wodehouse, with nearly 100 tomes to his name, is one of the best-loved and famous writers of comedy in the English language. But what of the man himself? Donaldson's biography, the first to have the complete cooperation of the Wodehouse estate, paints an in-depth and affectionate picture of the man known to his friends as Plum. It covers his life from school at Dulwich; life in the City; early years writing for magazines; his love affair with Broadway and Hollywood; his time as a prisoner of war and his wartime broadcast from Berlin that had him branded a traitor for many years; and his final years in America.
