A (long) Life in Letters

book cover image A Life In Letters

What ho, Jeeves! Did you know P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975) may have had the longest career of any professional writer in history? First published at age 17, 'Plum' was still writing into his 90s. He shied away from a biography, but his letters shed a lot of light on the creator of Jeeves, Wooster, Psmith and the Empress of Blandings.

Drawing on hitherto unpublished sources, P.G. Wodehouse: a life in letters covers his schooldays at Dulwich College, his family's financial reverses, life in New York working in musical comedy with Jerome Kern and George and Ira Gershwin, fame as a novelist, and the unhappy episode in 1940 where he was interned by the Germans and later - erroneously - accused of broadcasting pro-Nazi propaganda.
