Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (always known as ¿Plum¿) wrote about seventy novels and some three hundred short stories over seventy-three years. He is widely recognised as the greatest 20th-century writer of humour in the English language.

Perhaps best known for the escapades of Bertie Wooster and Jeeves, Wodehouse also created the world of Blandings Castle, home to Lord Emsworth and his cherished pig, the Empress of Blandings. His stories include gems concerning the irrepressible and disreputable Ukridge; Psmith, the elegant socialist; the ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred; and those related by Mr Mulliner, the charming raconteur of The Angler¿s Rest, and the Oldest Member at the Golf Club.

In 1936 he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for ¿having made an outstanding and lasting contribution to the happiness of the world¿. He was made a Doctor of Letters by Oxford University in 1939 and in 1975, aged ninety-three, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. He died shortly afterwards, on St Valentine¿s Day.

"To have one of his books in your hand is to possess by way of a pill that can relieve anxiety, rageiness, or an afternoon-long tendency towards the sour. Paper has rarely been put to better use than printing Wodehouse." -- Caitlin Moran "Not only the funniest English novelist who ever wrote but one of our finest stylists. His world is perfect, his writing is perfect. What more is there to be said?" -- Susan Hill "P. G. Wodehouse is the gold standard of English wit." -- Christopher Hitchens "An incomparable and timeless genius." -- Kate Mosse "P. G. Wodehouse should be prescribed to treat depression. Cheaper, more effective than valium and far, far more addictive." -- Olivia Williams
