Carry on, Jeeves

INTERVIEWER: Do you ever go back and reread your own books?
WODEHOUSE: Oh, yes. 
INTERVIEWER: Are you ever surprised by them?
WODEHOUSE: I’m rather surprised that they’re so good.


INTERVIEWER: Did you always know you would be a writer?
WODEHOUSE: Yes, always. I know I was writing stories when I was five. I don’t remember what I did before that. Just loafed, I suppose.


INTERVIEWER: Have any other writers ever been envious of you?
WODEHOUSE: Well, I always thought A. A. Milne was rather. We were supposed to be quite good friends, but, you know, in a sort of way I think he was a pretty jealous chap.

...and other gems from the P.G. Wodehouse interview here.
