This is the first published selection from the huge collection of Wodehouse's letters. Donaldson, who also wrote Wodehouse's authorized biography (now out of print), has compiled a very enjoyable and informative book. Mainly addressed to a small group of close friends and Wodehouse's stepdaughter Leonora, the letters are arranged for the most part under subject headings rather than in chronological order. They give insight into all aspects of Wodehouse's life and career--including wartime in France and Germany, visits to Hollywood in the 1930s, opinions of other writers, and domestic trivia such as his love of his dogs. The long section in which Wodehouse discusses his own work gives fascinating insight into an author at work and shows that even this most prolific of writers--Wodehouse wrote 93 books--sometimes had difficulty thinking up a plot.
