The Letters of Dorothy L Sayers

£35.00

Product description

This selection of letters, subtitled '1899-1936: the making of a detective novelist', is chosen and edited by Barbara Reynolds, and there is a preface by P D James. Barbara Reynolds' signature is on the title page. This first edition was published in 1995 by Hodder and Stoughton.

Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893 – 1957) was a renowned English crime writer, poet, playwright, essayist, translator, and Christian humanist. She was also a student of classical and modern languages. She is best known for her mysteries, a series of novels and short stories set between the First and Second World Wars that feature English aristocrat and amateur sleuth Lord Peter Wimsey, which remain popular to this day. However, Sayers herself considered her translation of Dante's Divine Comedy to be her best work. She is also known for her plays, literary criticism, and essays.

Barbara Reynolds is the President of the Dorothy L Sayers Society, and the author of the biography 'Dorothy L Sayers: her life and soul'

In very good used condition. Bound in brown cloth, with clean unclipped dustjacket.
