Have you read The Red House Mystery by A.A. Milne? We read it recently and loved it - very fun and - in some ways - Wodehousian. :-)


I'm positive that we have a copy of it around here somewhere -- I'll have to dig it out! ...I'm suddenly REALLY EXCITED to read it, so thank you!


I had no idea! The characterization of Milne as the disengaged father who wrote saccharine stories for the son he ignored is sadly spot on, and I can understand Milne's extreme reaction to what Wodehouse did, especially since Milne fought in WWI and Wodehouse did not serve.


Yeah, I knew the bare bones of the Wodehouse/WWII controversy, but I'd never run across anything about their friendship or subsequent falling-out! Not a happy story, but a super-interesting one, at any rate!
