12 Voorhees Richard J. P.G. WODEHOUSE
Twayne Publishers, Inc. New York 1966 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good Good in Protective Cover 21cm Inscription and Signature of Author
"This study attempts to remedy the lack of critical attention paid to Wodehouse by relating his work to the body of English comic literature. The biographical aspect of the work also throws light on the major themes of the author's novels. Clarification of Wodehouses ambiguous role during World War 11 is offered, not as an apologia, but with the idea of understanding the deeper values and character of this essentially genial and optimistic gentleman.'
