P.G. Wodehouse

Wodehouse, P.G. (Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse; 1881–1975), English writer of humorous novels and short stories. His writings, set in the early 1900–1920s, portray life in the upper class. Wodehouse's best-known novels, Carry On Jeeves (1925) and The Code of the Woosters (1938), relate the humorous predicaments of the dim-witted Bertie Wooster and his ever-sensible valet, Jeeves. Other works include A Pelican at Blandings (1969) and lyrics for such musical comedies as Leave It to Jane (1917) and Rosalie (1928). Wodehouse became a U.S. citizen (1955) and was knighted in England (1975).
