    I read this one in the course of a lunch hour which I attribute both to its brevity and the fact that almost every page had some interesting fact or supposition about Wodehouse s work The biographical information was superficial but still enjoyable did you ever wonder exactly how many aunts and uncles Plum had It s here I particularly enjoyed reading about the real life inspirations for PGW s most famous characters I knew about the Psmith D oyly Carte connection already but many of the other suggestions, especially in regards to Bertie Wooster, were all new to me And there s a photograph of the pig that inspired the Empress of Blandings Even the most casual fans of Wodehouse if such a thing exists will appreciate this book.
