Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse, (1881-1975) was a British novelist, short story writer, journalist, playwright, poet and lyracist, immensly popular for his sense of humor and mastery of language.
Best known for his Jeeves series, Wodehouse created the most resourseful and competent servant in literature, the word ""Jeeves"" itself has become part of the vernacular. Wodehouse also had great success as a musical theater lyricist, making contributions to ""Show Boat"" and ""Anything Goes"".
Born in England to a noble family, Wodehouse's writings reflected his background, a truly humourous perspective on the upper class. During a stay in Manhattan, Wodehouse met his wife and settled in New York, with a brief adventure in Hollywood to write screenplays. Living into his nineties, Wodehouse enjoyed the fruits of his labor and acclaim worldwide, a happy, funny man.
Reviews for Alcazar AudioWorks' production of My Man Jeeves
""Brilliantly narrated light reading""
A lovely comic light reading. The book consists of several independent episodes, ideal for when you want some short ""bedtime stories"". The narrator is brilliant.
