Wodehouse On Wodehouse - P.G. Wodehouse an interesting collection of non-fiction, the first section is co-written by wodehouse's musical theatre partner, guy bolton, presented in third person, and generally recounts the time they spent making musical theatre. some very funny stories retold, and the scope of wodehouse's love and inspiration through musical theatre revealed.

the second work, performing flea, is a collection of letters sent to an old school friend, and minor writer, and my favourite part of the book because it's full of book recommendations, and talk about pekes, and cats, and getting older, and writing advice, and truly shows what an interesting and generous person wodehouse really was at heart, in addition to giving some insights into his methodology.

the third is called over seventy... and purports to being some kind of autobiography shaped by some questionnaire received by wodehouse in the mail. he lists out the questions and tries to answer them but invariable digresses. it was funny but much more like robert benchley than like wodehouse (which i now know is pronounced "woodhouse").
