Have you ever buzzed off in search of a utopian existence? Well I have, and it’s dashed difficult to find. The closest I’ve managed is curling up with a book by P.G. Wodehouse and letting the world go by.
Plumtopia aims to share this joy with others.
If you are new to Wodehouse, or working your way through his work for the first time, you’ll find plenty of reading lists and tips. Get started with this P.G. Wodehouse Reading Guide.
If you’re new to Plumtopia, here are few favourite pieces:
- You’ll find lots of reviews here, but A Damsel in Distress at the Chichester Festival is probably my favourite.
- P.G. Wodehouse in Bath: The Loafing Years reveals Wodehouse’s connection with this great literary town. A Day Out with the Wiltshire Gudgeons explores his connections with the region.
- Suffering from cheerfulness: Wodehouse at War looks beyond wartime propaganda and contemporary clickbait about Wodehouse’s wartime broadcasts
- P.G. Wodehouse: A Broadway Centenary — by Tony Ring is one of many guests posts at Plumtopia — looking at Wodehouse’s lesser known Broadway career.
- Discover: What do Wodehouse lovers read when they’re not reading Wodehouse?
- 50 Shades of Wodehouse Homage considers whether Wodehouse imitation ought to be attempted, and in ‘The F of the S: A Junior Lipstick tale’ I attempt it myself.
- Read about my personal highlight — a Visit to the Wodehouse Family Archives.
- Or go back to where it all began in 2011 with In Search of Plumtopia.
I hope Plumtopia may become a haven for you also. I love to share guest posts and Wodehouse posts by other bloggers, and your contributions are very welcome.
Please make yourself at home and don’t hesitate to ring the bell if there’s anything you need.
