Fans devoted to the master of comic fiction, P.G. Wodehouse are legion. He represents an antic high point in the world of farce and social satire. Best known for the creation of two fictional worlds based on Blandings Castle and the Wooster-Jeeves, gentleman-valet duo, Wodehouse is appreciated the world over for his exceedingly clever and comically savvy send-ups of the idle rich in Edwardian England.
In The Code of The Woosters, it takes all the ingenuity of Jeeves, the "gentleman's gentleman" extraordinaire, to rescue his hapless and hopelessly obtuse young employer, Bertie Wooster, from the pickle of a plot to steal a silver jug from the home of an irascible magistrate.
P.G. Wodehouse, (1881-1975) was born in Surrey, educated in London and spent much of his life in Southampton, Long Island, becoming an American citizen in 1955. In a literary career spanning more than 70 years, he published more than 90 books, 20 film scripts and collaboratated on more than 30 plays and musical comedies.
