Newly discovered P G Wodehouse Story has appeared in The Sunday Times!


by Jamie Jarrett


Members will be aware from the September 2008 and December 2008 Wooster Sauce issues of the recently discovered P G Wodehouse story entitled 'Providence and the Butler'. This story had as yet never been published in the UK. However, the Sunday Times printed this story in full, within their magazine, on 28th December 2008. We announced this on our website well before publication and hope that many of you were lucky enough to obtain a copy of the first UK publication of this delightful short story.


As reported first in the UK by The P G Wodehouse Society (UK) members' magazine, Wooster Sauce, John Dawson recently discovered this story in the US Library of Congress's digital archive. Inspired by Norman Murphy's A Wodehouse Handbook, John is now embarking on a project to gather, annotate and write about every piece of Wodehouse's work between 1900-1910. This is a massive undertaking and we not only wish him well for this, but look forward to the Wodehousean world benefiting from his endeavours. Our thanks also to Tony Ring for bringing us this important publication information prior to the event.
