"When my man came in with the steaming cup of tea, I rolled out of bed and said (in a marked manner), `Oh, I say!'": How Richard Stark is like P.G. Wodehouse
Setting is frequently a major plot point, the focus of all action, whether Cockaigne or Totleigh Towers. Nocturnal break-ins abound in both the Jeeves stories and the Parker books, and Wodehouse's Bertie Wooster refers back to previous Jeeves and Bertie stories, just as Stark's Butcher's Moon is an all-star cast of characters from the Parker novels that had gone before.
More to come. In the meantime, in what other ways are Richard Stark and P.G. Wodehouse alike?
