About the Author

P.G. Wodehouse is recognised as the greatest English comic writer of the twentieth century. His characters and settings have entered our language and our mythology. Launched on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his death, the Everyman Wodehouse will eventually contain all the novels and stories, edited and reset. Each Everyman volume will be the finest edition of the master ever published. The series now numbers over sixty titles.

Reviews

This timely work is an entertaining yet scholarly study of the life of Eva Peron. It reveals the woman behind the myth and discards dubious elements that crept into the musical drama and the recent movie. For instance, her role in the coup that returned Juan Peron to power was rather more complicated than is usually presented. In the 1940s, Argentina's power structure underwent a sea change; unions entered the picture for the first time. The Perons fanned the sparks of that revolution. In addition, the U.S. ambassador unjustly accused Peron of being a fascist, which was not the case. In the early days, Peron brought Argentina the most democratic government it had ever known. Only in the later days, especially after Eva's death, did Peron's government become a dictatorship. However, in the context of the era, Eva's activities could be compared to those of Eleanor Roosevelt. Her deeds were highly controversial at the time, particularly in a Latin country with macho traditions. Nadia May's otherwise adequate narration fails to capture all of Eva's contradictions. Expect strong interest generated by the recent film. For most collections.‘James Dudley, Copiague, N.Y.
