    What's not to like? What kinds of thing did that collection of his letters show you about him as a person? This is the domain of the caricaturist, whose sure and slashing strokes have a purity of outline that feels inevitable. And that was mainly naivete. Wodehouse - A Damsel in Distress.

    But one wonders about the reality. And then, he proceeds to write a remarkably serious mystery story, except with the right kind of intelligent woman involved. Jasen's book is simply chronological, but his brief treatment of wartime still includes bits not in the other books. Books for People with Print Disabilities.

    I don't know what to think of Jasen as a biographer--I tend to believe that he's a poor one from the showing on this book, as he tends to simply list events in Plum's life, interspersed with excerpreted letters by and to Plum. In any case, this man is hysterical, wrote about a hundred books, and his first name is Plum. Special review love for Peter, who lent me my first Wodehouse novel. He also seems to have lifted bits of Jasen's book nearly verbatim, although sometimes out of context so as to give the opposite impression. It was also interesting to read his poetry.

On the other hand, I don't konw how you could treat Wodehouse in any other way, for he truly had lost any malicious bone in his body at approximately the age of 25, as if mean-spiritedness was a baby-tooth that one lost and promptly forgot about.

He was friends with Arthur Conan Doyle but not as friendly as he would like to be, so his letters to Doyle are particularly carefully crafted, with a little bit of a swagger about them. His most famous characters, Bertie Wooster and his manservant, Jeeves, appeared in books such as Much Obliged, Jeeves.

His characters did not live in the real world? He was extremely generous and immensely kind, but rather oblivious, a bit like his own favourite character, the pig-loving Lord Emsworth, the ninth Earl of Blandings.
