Hello again, esteemed author. (I’m the guy, as you probably don’t recall — why should you? — who posted that little site about The Artsy Smartsy Club with copies of all the paintings.)

It has recently come to my attention that practically EVERY author I absolutely love has a great esteem and love for British author P. G. Wodehouse. However, in all my readings and listenings to you, I don’t recall you mentioning him. Did you not run across him during those important childhood years, or do you not like the guy’s work? Seriously, of my ten favorite authors, the other nine have at one point or another proclaimed their love for him. Why not you?

Just curious,


Daniel replies:

That is a cool website with the paintings! So, what authors have I, to your knowledge, proclaimed my love for? And I do like P.G. Wodehouse pretty well, but I do not think about his work on a daily basis, or have a little shrine to him or anything. I did enjoy the TV programs with Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, and I like that Wodehouse supported the Bide-a-Wee home for animals, and also that he smoked a corn cob pipe, and became a U.S. citizen.
