My favourite author is P.G.Wodehouse. I find his books, many of which I have read and re-read over the years, extremely relaxing.
I am convinced that no one else has written so well as he has in the English language – particularly in his use of humour.
- She looked as if she had been poured into her clothes and had forgotten to say “when.”
- The Duke of Dunstable had one-way pockets. He would walk ten miles in the snow to chisel an orphan out of tuppence.
- The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun
- It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.
I have been reading Wodehouse for more than 40 years. Even now, his books give me as much pleasure as when I first read them.
