    1. When PG & Bolton met with a Broadway biggie in the teens of the 20thC, a kid in knickerbockers stayed for the story conference. Age 12, he was a nephew, or something, who possessed the intelligence of the typical theatregoer, it was said. If he liked what he heard, so would the public. And if he didnt -- well, forget it. Therein, show business in America. Of course, compiling this fictionalized memoir after W2, Wodehouse said that their account mustn't let anything interfere with entertainme [...]


    2. This is not a Wodehouse novel, but is kind of a quasi-memoir, written together with Guy Bolton, about their time in the early twentieth century writing musical comedies together. It is pretty funny, and is replete with gossip from that era, including a number of names that are still known today -- W.C. Fields, Ziegfeld, Gershwin, Cole Porter, Bob Hope, Fred Astaire, and even one anecdote of the time Wodehouse met Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan fame), and managed to get him to glare at him.Th [...]


    3. I have been a huge fan of P. G. Wodehouse’s book for nearly forty years, having started to read them while I was still at school. His novels are delightful, written with a mastery of the English language that few other writers come close to matching. Yes, they are ridiculous, as removed from reality as is possible, but any reader prepared to suspend disbelief for just a few pages is sucked in and likely to become addicted. I have read some of the Jeeves and Wooster stories several times over, [...]


    4. "Critics have often commented on the sombre gloom which permeates all Wodehouse novels like the smell of muddy shoes in a locker-room and have wished that, fine as they are, there was not quite so much of the Russian spirit of pessimism and hopelessness in them" (This book is hilarious!)Because of this book I have now finally learned how to correctly pronounce Wodehouse' last name, and it turns out I've been doing it all wrong (see page 14)This is a somewhat unique book quite different from Wode [...]


    5. P.G. Wodehouse was often quoted as saying that his novels and stories were musical comedy without the music. Just how much this is true becomes apparent from reading his autobiographical book Bring on the Girls (co-written with his musical theater partner, Guy Bolton). Although Wodehouse is now known for the 80-plus novels he wrote over his life starring such wonderful characters as Bertie Wooster and his manservant Jeeves, in the 1920s, Wodehouse was better known as a lyricist for a string of [...]



    6. Alongside his career as a prolific novelist, Wodehouse was also highly productive in theatrical circles, providing lyrics for some thirty plays and collaborating on the book a further fifteen. Many of those plays were created in collaboration with Guy Bolton and this book tells the story of that relationship through a patchwork of light-hearted anecdotes and star-studded stories.What's striking about the book is how crazy the times were. Characters leap from the pages in a way which, had you not [...]


    7. One of the reasons the keepers of the canon are suspicious of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse is his productivity. Your true artist is supposed to suffer over his/her prose and not be massively prolific. This is a book which celebrates Wodehouse’s ability to churn ‘em out, showing how – even when creating Jeeves and Blandings – he was writing dozens of Broadway musicals.Written in conjunction with Guy Bolton (one of history’s forgotten men if there was one) this is a whisk through a long ag [...]


    8. Bring on the Girls! is a semi-autobiographical collaboration between P. G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton, published in 1953.Subtitled "The Improbable Story of Our Life in Musical Comedy, With Pictures To Prove It", it takes the form of a series of partly fictionalised, partly apocryphal stories centred on the world of Broadway, where both Wodehouse and Bolton had worked successfully as lyricists, collaborating with the likes of composer Jerome Kern, the Gershwins, etc. It features anecdotes about the [...]


    9. An autobiographical joint effort by Guy Bolton and PG Wodehouse, who collaborated as book (Bolton) and lyrics (Wodehouse) in many musical comedies on Broadway throughout the 1920's. Book ends at the point where the Wall Street crash wipes them both out, and Broadway as well, driving them to Hollywood to work as screen writers.Well worth the read - the title stems from the catchcry of directors, producers etc. of the era whenever a show hit a flat spot in rehearsals - bring on the girls!


    10. This should be interesting in itself, inasmuch as Wodehouse was more involved in musical comedy than you might think. (He wrote the lyrics to "Bill," a song which wound up, through no fault of his own, in SHOWBOAT.) "Bill" was written for an earlier Jerome Kern musical and cut. But, yes, Wodehouse worked with Jerome Kern. Guy Bolton was quite prolific in musical theatre. He and Wodehouse became lifelong friends.


    11. So obviously I read this in my quest to complete all of Wodehouse, but people interested in the New York that is a might find it interesting. This is the recollection of his adventures with his longtime writing partner, Guy Bolton. It contains interesting peeks at life in the theater, then takes you through the crash and his move to Hollywood.


    12. This is a now out-of-print memoir by the humorist P.G. Wodehouse and his partner, Guy Bolton. The two collaborated on a series of musicals, many of which were extremely successful in their day. The book is a fascinating look at the Broadway theater world of the 20s and 30s, told with the wit and humor you'd expect from these two.


    13. This is one of those memoirs of which one feels sure the authors do not let the truth get in the way of a good story. It's an entertaining look at life in the teens through the twenties of the last century, especially as it pertained to the production of musical comedies in New York and London. Lots of laughs.


    14. Mostly entertaining as a glimpse into early musical theater and "the other side" of PG's writing career (he did say his novels were like a sort of musical comedy without music!) Also because of Wodehouse and Bolton's fruitful collaboration on one of my favorite musicals, "Anything Goes."
