9780831768638: P.G. Wodehouse, a Literary Biography

An impressive biography, well-researched and equally well-written of the creator of the inimitable Jeeves the butler, Bertie Wooster, Psmith, Lord Emsworth, and other unforgettable characters. Despite being an author of highly imaginative and successful novels, and his careers in Hollywood as a successful screenwriter and a Boardway lyricist that kept him forever in the public eye, Wodehouse was a very private man that few people actually knew. A fascinating story of how Wodehouse mirrored his life in fiction, for example his stint as a bank clerk in London and a vast array of experiences that he used in his novels & screenplays. Biographer Green chronicles the events that influenced him, his likes and dislikes, his distrust and hatred of Tinseltown, banking system & bankers, the 9 to 5 drudgery and his contempt for politicians of any type. A very complex, private individual, whose public never realized his need for his highly valued privacy or how close his work bore hints of the real man behind the curtain. Fascinating and highly entertaining.
