Availability: In stock

£12.00
The large-format map charts locations both fictional and real: Blandings Castle, Brinkley Court, the Drones Club, Wodehouse's childhood home in Guilford ('as normal as rice pudding'), prep school at Dulwich College, and the bank where he endured a brief, unhappy period working as 'the most inefficient clerk whose trouser seat ever polished a stool.' In his works, PG Wodehouse avoided using real-life locations, yet close reading reveals clues. Making use of all available scholarship, and a lifetime absorbed by the world Wodehouse created, Blandings And Beyond is your passport to what Evelyn Waugh called 'Mr Wodehouse's idyllic world.
