From the Publisher:
P. G. Wodehouse wrote some of the greatest comic masterpieces of all time. So, naturally, we find the same humor and wit in his letters. He offers hilarious accounts of living in England and France, the effects of prohibition, and how to deal with publishers. He even recounts cricket matches played while in a Nazi concentration camp (Wodehouse wanted to show the stiff upper lip of the British in the toughest situations). Over the years, Wodehouse corresponded with relatives, friends, and some of the greatest figures of the twentieth century: Agatha Christie, Ira Gershwin, Evelyn Waugh, George Orwell, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The letters are arranged chronologically with intersecting sections of biography written by Sophie Ratcliffe. This is the only book you will need to understand the man behind the characters.
"P. G. WODEHOUSE: A LIFE IN LETTERS covers his long life. There must be many more uncollected or lost letters since he often wrote more than a dozen letters in a day. But the editor, Sophie Ratcliffe, has done a marvelous job. Her linking passages are sympathetic and intelligent, her footnotes well-judged. The book is a joy, and every admirer of Wodehouse will want to have it." - Allan Massie 02/02/2013
