 About the Book 

Whos Who in Wodehouse accounts for every character who enters Wodehouses fiction and speaks lines. It also identifies dozens of manservants, butlers, chambermaids, and others in service whose calling requrires reticence, assorted cats and dogsMoreWhos Who in Wodehouse accounts for every character who enters Wodehouses fiction and speaks lines. It also identifies dozens of manservants, butlers, chambermaids, and others in service whose calling requrires reticence, assorted cats and dogs whose personalities transcend speech, a moustache named Joyeuse which takes on a life of its own, and a similary named bath sponge.Because it uses Wodehouses own words to describe his characters, Whos Who in Wodehouse is entertaining reading in its own right, providing a quick appreciation of such extraordinary families as the far-flung Mulliners, the kith and kin of Lord Emsworth (the Threepwood clan), and Bertie Woosters tribe. Peter van Straatens brilliant line drawings of this pick of Plums personae add to the entertainment as they deftly capture the essence of their subjects.
