Overview

Who's Who in Wodehouse accounts for every character who enters Wodehouse's 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 Wodehouse's own words to describe his characters, Who's 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 Wooster's tribe. Peter van Straaten's brilliant line drawings of this pick of Plum's personae add to the entertainment as they deftly capture the essence of their subjects.
