His favourite writers:

 James Thurber, Robert Benchley, Wolcott Gibbs, George S. Kaufman, S.J. Perelman, Anthony Powell, Jean Kerr, Rex Stout, Agatha Christie, Shakespeare (every year),

 “For a humorous novel you’ve got to have a scenario, and you’ve got to test it so that you know where the comedy comes in, where the situations come in…splitting it up into scenes (you can make a scene of almost anything) and have as little stuff in between as possible.”
