PG Wodehouse

Great Lives


In this Great Lives episode, Stephen Fry talks about PG Wodehouse (1881-1975), one of his favourite writers.

Included in the discussion is the young Pelham Grenville’s childhood away from his parents (dad was a magistrate working in the then British colony of Hong Kong). A ‘child of the Empire’ Stephen Fry calls him.

Because it was aunts often looking after Pelham rather than his parents – he felt parcelled around - aunts tend to feature in his stories rather than parents.

PG Wodehouse was a prolific writer. His creations include Bertie Wooster and his wise valet, Jeeves.
