Abstract:

Discussing his career and progress on his writing, and answering many questions about his life; discussing his early reading, the source of Blandings, and his (poor) reputation in New York, mentioning George S. Kaufman (letter 3); offering an assessment of Orwell: "he struck me as one of those warped birds who have never recovered from an unhappy childhood and a miserable school life. He took everything so damed seriously" (letter 5); describing Jeeves's first appearance (letter 6); describing his time in Hollywood (letter 7); discussing his writing for Vanity Fair and his opinion of Punch (letter 13); mentioning A.A. Milne: "Odd chap, Milne. There was a curious jealous streak in him which doesn't come out in his writing. I love his writing but never liked him much" (letter 14) and Garrie and Kipling (briefly).
