Sounds good …

… New Wodehouse book: ‘This is jolly old Fame’ by Paul Kent hits the spot – Plumtopia. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

… Kent makes points which had never occurred to me, setting my thoughts in a multitude of new directions. He draws on an impressive array of literary sources and opinions, but doesn’t hold back from giving his own – firmly, but respectfully questioning some of the ideas many of us seem to have accepted as lore when it comes to discussing Wodehouse and his work. This is the sort of thinking and writing the world of Wodehouse appreciation needs – and gives the rest of us plenty to talk about.
