Books about P G Wodehouse
P G Wodehouse recommends

Ship's Company (1911)
W W Jacobs
"When I started out as a writer Jacobs represented to me perfection. Others might abide my question, but he was free, as the fellow said. Even in my early twenties, when my critical facilities were nothing to write home about, I could see how good he was and how simply and unerringly he got his effects, and nothing has changed my high opinion of him since. He was unique, and still is."
