Wodehouse Interviewed

Here’s a Boxing Day treat for you: various clips of P.G. Wodehouse speaking. Despite a 26-year-long devotion to the great man and his books (a devotion I’ve passed on to my kids), I’d never heard him talk. Here’s the man Hilaire Belloc once called “the greatest writer of English now alive.”

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas, and will continue to enjoy it until the Epiphany.

    You know, I DID see some Wodehouse Playhouse back in the day, and I completely forgot about the intros, or else they weren’t included for some reason. Thanks for the reminder.
