Sir P[elham] G[renville] Wodehouse KBE (1881 – 1975) was an English author who was one of the most widely read humorists of the 20th century. His early novels were mostly school stories, but he later switched to comic fiction, creating several regular and amusing characters. They include jolly gentleman of leisure, Bertie Wooster, and his sagacious valet Jeeves; the immaculate and loquacious Psmith; Lord Emsworth and the Blandings Castle set; the Oldest Member, with stories about golf; and Mr Mulliner.--Wiki
