P.G. Wodehouse: A Life in Letters

Wodehouse is the type of writer who you think you may know because his writing style is so easily recognizable, especially in his hilarious Jeeves books. But this book of his letters, some sent to fellow writers including Agatha Christie, Evelyn Waugh, and George Orwell, distinguishes Wodehouse the author from Wodehouse the person. There’s also plenty to be learned from his experiences during the Second World War and time spent in a Nazi internment camp.
