For more than a century, readers around the world would have been delighted by the novels, short stories, plays, lyrics and essays of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, best known as the creator of the dimwitter English gentleman Bertie Wooster and his indispensable valet, Jeeves. The definitive authorised biography of one of the greatest literary humourists of all time, first published in 1974 and now appearing in a revised, updated edition. Comprehensively illustrated, with many unique family portraits, this is the first book to trace Wodehouse's career from his first magazine contribution in 1901 through his show-business years with Jerome Kern and George Gershwin to his one hundred books that have brought so much pleasure to readers over the years.
