A Wodehouse Handbook: Vol. 1 The World of Wodehouse 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is THE best Wodehouse resource there is (I rank it just a bit above Daniel Garrison's wonderful "Who's Who in Wodehouse" and "The Millenium Wodehouse Concordance" by Tony Ring and Geoffrey Jaggard. I have the 1st edition and will be purchasing this edition also - my current edition is pretty dog-eared from constant use. It is such a handy reference, and not just for Wodehouse books, but for other books of the era during which Wodehouse wrote. There's a reason why Wodehouse enthusiasts the world over call Norman Murphy "The Man Who Knows Almost Everything" - and this is one of them.
