That was the first one I read. From the very first sentence, I knew this guy was something special.

Apparently what he used to do is paste pages of his novel in progress all around the walls of the room in which he would write. Initially they would be pasted low down on the wall, roughly skirting board height. He would then edit them and rewrite them and as he improved them he would repaste them higher up the wall until they reache the picture rail, whereupon they were suitable for publication.

If that single fact doesn't make you squirm with delight I don't know what will!


P.S. Oh and I was at school with his great-granddaughter, not that that means anything.

P.P.S. Aunts Aren't Gentlemen and Carry On Jeeves are also personal favourites, as are the Blandings stories and Psmith.....oh well, all of it!
