Audio slideshow: Plum Pie

PG Wodehouse's witty prose - poking fun at the English upper classes - has won him a small army of fans that continues to celebrate his numerous works, more than 30 years after his death.

Many of them crammed into a small bookshop in London's Mayfair at the launch of a new exhibition "Plum Pie" - that looks at the life of the man who they argue is England's greatest literary humorist.

Evan Davis went along, and found that there is more to PG Wodehouse than Jeeves and Wooster.

Song "My Castle in the Air" performed by Hal Cazalet, step-great grandson of PG Wodehouse.
Slideshow production by Paul Kerley. Publication date 24 September 2009.
