P.G. Wodehouse

If you are a fan of British humorist P.G. Wodehouse, you may appreciate the work of some the other authors on this list. Wodehouse wrote numerous novels and shorter works, but is probably best known as the creator of Bertie Wooster and his faithful manservant Jeeves. Wodehouse’s works were satirical, yet gentle, pokes at the established societal order in Great Britain. His light, frothy plots — farcical in nature — are always meticulously worked out, and the witty bon mots of his characters belies a savvy intelligence, in particular on the part of Jeeves. While “class differences” may be a popular subject for fiction writers, there are few who handle the topic with the refreshing mixture of humor and absurdity that Wodehouse applied to the topic. The authors here are some who come close.
