Clearing the record …

… Wodehouse’s Anti-Semitism in Context by Elliott Milstein – Plumtopia. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

So, what out of context looks like a complaint about the sudden vocalness and pushiness of Jews, is, in context, a prelude to Wodehouse’s offer to promote Townend’s book about Jews. This is hardly the action of an anti-Semite.

Here is Ivry's piece: How Lovely P.G. Wodehouse Was — Such A Shame About The Anti-Semitism.

 An here are two other related pieces:

… Church of England should abandon plans to honour antisemite P.G. Wodehouse with memorial stone at Westminster Abbey.

… Wodehouse memorial at Westminster Abbey is criticised.
