P.G. Wodehouse was born in 1881 and died in 1975 on St Valentine’s Day, only weeks after being knighted. He is most famous for the creation of Jeeves and Wooster.
Pelham Grenville Wodehouse was born in the wealthy county of Surrey to an upper class family. Born towards the end of the 19th Century in 1881 Wodehouse grew up during a time of drastic change in the industrial world and one of great importance for culture in Europe. This will have had an impressive influence on his upbringing and on the direction he would eventually choose as a respected author.
Wodehouse wrote more than 90 books during his long career, many of them featuring returning characters such as the Earl of Emsworth and Jeeves and Wooster.
'Full Moon' follows the series of books set at the troubled but elegant Blandings Castle, and is the sixth full-length novel set here. The story sees the return of the 9th Earl of Emsworth, Clarence, who in this narrative watches on as his family becomes wrapped up in romantic situations, furtive liaisons and general shenanigans. Recurring characters appear or are connected with new characters, who emerge in this Wodehouse story of romance and comedy.
Jeremy Sinden, the English actor famous for his eccentric and dramatic portrayals, is a perfect fit for this Wodehouse reenactment. He reads this complete and unabridged version of 'Full Moon' as audiobooks on CD and MP3, bringing life to the Earl of Emsworth and the goings on at the always-entertaining Blandings Castle.
