Over Seventy

-----------------------------------

When is an autobiography not an autobiography? When the author is P.G. Wodehouse. Over Seventy purports to be a series of answers to stray questions about ageing given by a rambling old gentlemen full of irrelevant anecdotes and wise saws, but when the rambling old gentlemen in question happens to be P.G. Wodehouse we know that this persona is shrewd literary strategy. Underneath the strategy, Wodehouse's feeling for literary form and his nose for comedy are as strong as ever. Presenting himself as a traditional Englishman who deplores the baring of soles, Wodehouse neatly sidesteps difficult biographical questions, in favour of self deprecating humour and comic vignette. But if Over Seventy is deliberately evasive, its very discretion tells us a lot about one of the most celebrated twentieth century writers. A charming and very funny book which reveals more than it says.
