P. G. Wodehouse A Biography

Hardcover, New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1982. First Edition. Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust jacket. "P. G. Wodehouse: the most prolific and funniest comic novelist of our time, whose creations...inhabit some of the most hilarious books ever written...but his work masked an entirely different nature: his enormous creative outpouring was the escapist expression of a man almost painfully shy, a near-recluse throughout his adult life, even at the height of his career. Now, Frances Donaldson - who enjoyed a long, personal acquaintanceship with Wodehouse - gives us, full scale, the life of this prodigious comic genius, enabling us to understand the remarkable dichotomy between the man and his work..." - from the dust jacket.
