P.G. Wodehouse

P. G. Wodehouse is widely considered one of the greatest English humorists of the twentieth century. He wrote dozens of books and created many immortal characters, the most famous of which are the hapless Bertie Wooster and his inimitable valet Jeeves. Most of Wodehouse’s fiction is set in England, but he spent much of his life in the US, using New York and Hollywood as settings for some of his stories. He also co-wrote a series of Broadway comedies during and after the First World War that played an important part in the development of the American musical.
