Donaldson and Wodehouse go together like Boswell and Johnson, Emsworth and the Empress,
and Jeeves and Bertie.Stephen Fry

Who has not come to know and love the impeccable Jeeves and the inimitable Bertie? Together with Lord
Emsworth, his prize sow the Empress of Blandings, Psmith and a whole host of redoubtable Wooster aunts,
they form a cast of characters, immortalized in print and on screen, whose sharply observed antics are as
popular now as when they first appeared in 1919.

But what of their creator, Pelham Greville Wodehouse, whose ninety-three years produced a volume of work
unsurpassed in the history of literature? Was he really a traitor to his country who broadcast dangerous
propaganda from Germany during the war? And how can this be squared with the immensely lovable figure
of Plum upon whom the Queen bestowed a knighthood in 1975?

In researching this authorized, definitive biography, Frances Donaldson was given unique access to Wodehouses
most important private papers, including the notebooks he kept during the sad episode of his internment during
the Second World War. She also, for the first time, puts his beliefs, his writings and his actions into the full context
of the rest of his life.

Lucidly and evocatively written, yet meticulously detailed, P. G. Wodehouse is a thought-provoking biography
of an intriguing and widely misunderstood man. It is the benchmark of biographical writing against which recent
literary biographies have had to be measured.

Frederick Davidson is a recipient of the Golden Voices Award and numerous Earphones Awards. After performing for years in many BBC radio plays, he came to America in 1976. He has narrated more than eight hundred audiobooks.
