#111: PG Wodehouse

I have always admired your work so much, especially the Music of Time series. The early ones are all fine, but what I like, and what I suppose everyone likes, is the feeling that one is living with a group of characters and sharing their adventures, the whole thing lit up with the charm which is your secret. I hope the series is going on for ever. I should hate to feel that I should never meet Widmerpool again.
