Biography

Born in Guildford in 1881, Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was educated at Dulwich College in London. He started a career in banking but did not enjoy the work and turned his hand to writing, publishing humorous stories in magazines and newspapers that quickly gained him popularity. From 1909 onwards, Wodehouse divided his time between Britain and the United States. He became influential to the development of American musicals; during and after the First World War, he wrote a series of comedies for Broadway together with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern.

After a brief period of working in Hollywood, Wodehouse moved to France in 1934 and six years later was captured by the invading Germans in Touquet and interned. Upon his release in 1941, he made five broadcasts on request by the Gestapo, recounting humorous anecdotes about his time in the prisoner of war camp tilted How to be an Internee Without Previous Training. In Britain, the broadcasts provoked a lot of controversy, leading him into difficulties with the British authorities who later twice blocked his nomination for a knighthood. Wodehouse never returned to the UK but spent the rest of his life in exile in the United States. Finally, after the intervention of Prime Minister Harold Wilson, Wodehouse was awarded a KBE in 1975, just a few weeks before his death at the age of 93 in Southampton, New York.

In his over 70-year career, P.G. Wodehouse published more than seventy novels, forty plays, two hundred short stories and other writings. His most famous characters include hapless, well-to-do Bertie Wooster and his sagacious valet Jeeves, Psmith – a monocle-sporting Old Etonian with a mind-boggling knack for escaping sticky situations unscathed – and the loquacious pub raconteur Mr. Mulliner. The Jeeves short story collections and books – written over 60 years between 1915-1974 – have been adapted for screen and TV several times. Wodehouse remains one of the world’s bestselling humorists, loved for his impeccable wit and hilarious turn of phrase and hailed as an inventor of a new prose style akin to ‘a kind of comic poetry’.
