    Who is that in your avatar, @Strog. I've seen him before, but can't put a name to him currently!

      Ah, the man Evelyn Waugh called "the head of my profession" -- the wonderful Mr. P.G. Wodehouse! My favorite author. Thought his face would fit in around here ;) (Nearly went for the "DON'T PANIC' whale and accompanying bowl of petunias.)

      Ah, yes! How stupid of me! I got his Collected Letters a while ago and I think that might be the cover photo. Plus, he and The Little Nugget (1913) gets a mention in Fleming's FRWL.

      I've only read FRWL twice -- first about ten years back and second time maybe a year ago. Discovered Wodehouse in between, so I was happy to find the reference on the reread! Seems an odd choice of reading material for a guy like Grant.

      Yes, that's what I was thinking too as I typed that. Maybe Fleming was having a little joke with the reader here that would only fully kick in when we heard about his serial killer background! By rights, he should have been reading de Sade instead!
