A Wodehouse Miscellany: Articles & Stories

A Wodehouse Miscellany: Articles & Stories

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, popularly known by his pen name, P.G. Wodehouse, is one of the most beloved writers of English prose. He is known for his uncanny ability to find and expose the hilarity of even the most quotidian settings and situations. This comprehensive collection of his shorter fiction and non-fiction works is a great introduction to Wodehouse for new readers, or a comforting volume for confirmed fans to dip into. “A Wodehouse Miscellany Articles & Stories” is a collection of short essays, stories and poems, all in P. G. Wodehouse's excellent style of wry humour. There is mention of Reggie Pepper, a Bertie Wooster precursor; and Bertie meeting Jeeves; and commentary with sly wit. Wodehouse wrote in an era with a slower pace. He was a genius in his own right.
