The youngest Wodehouse brother, Richard Lancelot Deane, known . I mean, the Berties never had to work
The youngest Wodehouse brother, Richard Lancelot Deane, known always as Dick, who was born on May 30, 1892, and went to Cheltenham rather than Dulwich, played three first-class cricket matches while working in India. These were for The Europeans in the Quadrangular Tournament; he batted six times for a total of 84, with a top score of 52 (against the Parsis), and took five wickets for 138 runs. I mean, the Berties never had to work. Which country houses staged those matches which Plum enjoyed, you wonder. The idea for this book stemmed from a simple question which crystallised in my mind in years of reading Wodehouse: just how good a cricketer was Plum?
Richard Alexander Usborne (16 May 1910 – 21 March 2006), or simply Dick Usborne, was a journalist, advertising executive and author.
Richard Alexander Usborne (16 May 1910 – 21 March 2006), or simply Dick Usborne, was a journalist, advertising executive and author. He is widely regarded as the leading scholar of the life and works of British comic writer P. Wodehouse (1881–1975). Richard Usborne was born on 16 May 1910 at Simla, in British India, the son of a civil servant. He was educated in England at Summer Fields Preparatory school, Charterhouse School and then Balliol College, Oxford.
Wodehouse at Work (1961) - not so much a biography as a celebration of both Wodehouse and his oeuvre and revised as Wodehouse at Work to the End (1977) after its subject's death in 1975 - was the brilliant result. It was an amused, affectionate and scholarly, yet at the same time utterly approachable book, which, together with the MP Iain Sproat's groundbreaking study of the calamitous period Wodehouse spent interned in Germany during the war, Wodehouse at War (1981), did much to restore Wodehouse's somewhat shabby post-war reputation.

Wodehouse at Work to the End" and "Plum Sauce" contained diverting appendices about translations of Wodehouse into French. Examples of such vocabulary included "pourvu de galette" ("oofy"), "déchiqueter" ("to tear limb from limb"), and "l'horrible drame de Steeple Bumpleigh" ("the Steeple Bumpleigh horror"). Wodehouse cooperated with Usborne in the latter's preparation of "Wodehouse at Work", although he destroyed a draft chapter on his controversial wartime activities, of which Usborne had not retained a copy, and this never appeared.
