A series of partly fictionalised, partly apocryphal stories centred on the world of Broadway written by Wodehouse with his friend, Guy Bolton
Despite an enormous solo output, P. G Wodehouse often co-operated with other writers, especially in the early stages of his career, exchanging or sharing plots, advising on problems and even writing books and stage-works together. Bring on the Girls is a characteristically mordant account of his work with Guy Bolton in musical comedy, which occupied much of Wodehouse’s energy from his arrival in America and effectively made his reputation. This is a tactful book - there are no shocking revelations - but an extremely amusing one, with vivid portraits of such stars as Gertrude Lawrence and insights into febrile life behind the scenes.
“Wodehouse’s idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in.”
“He exhausts superlatives”
“The Everyman edition promises to be a splendid celebration of the divine Plum.”
“The handsome bindings are only the cherry on top of what is already a cake without compare”
