Toszek, Poland | On a Wodehousean trail7 min read 11 Oct 2013, 04:44 PM IST
In search of a madhouse where Wodehouse found himself in the midst of World War II
At a bookshop in Delhi Airport, I had bought P.G. Wodehouse’s Money for Nothing to read on a train journey I was going to make a few days later. It wasn’t my first choice of reading material. I would have preferred Money in the Bank, a sequel to Money For Nothing, but unfortunately it is no longer in print. The reason I had been hunting for Money in the Bank is that I had made plans to travel to the place it was written in: a Nazi camp in Poland for civilian prisoners of war, where Wodehouse had been imprisoned in 1940 and 1941.
