Über den Autor (2021)

Sir Pelham Grenville Wodehouse (1881-1975) was an English author. Though he was named after his godfather, the author was not a fan of his name and more commonly went by P.G Wodehouse. Known for his comedic work, Wodehouse created reoccurring characters that became a beloved staple of his literature. Though most of his work was set in London, Wodehouse also spent a fair amount of time in the United States. Much of his work was converted into an "American" version, and he wrote a series of Broadway musicals that helped lead to the development of the American musical. P.G Wodehouse's eclectic and prolific canon of work both in Europe and America developed him to be one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century.
