P.G. Wodehouse

(1881 - 1975)

Pelham Grenville Wodehouse published more than ninety books, wrote more than twenty screenplays, and collaborated on more than thirty plays and musical comedies. Captured by Germans in France in 1940, he spent most of the war interned in Berlin, where he made a series of radio broadcasts relating his experiences and subtly mocking his captors. He became a U.S. citizen in 1955.
