(PUBSt. Martin's)"The latest and best biography. Reynolds gives a much fuller picture of Sayers's background and upbringing as a child of the rectory, descended from Anglican clergy, for whom a love of the KJV, Shakespeare, and the Book of Common Prayer were bred in the bone,"---Christianity Today. 398 pages, softcover.
Mystery writer Dorothy Sayers is loved and remembered, most notably, for the creation of sleuths Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane. As this biography attests, Sayers was also one of the first women to be awarded a degree from Oxford, a playwright, and an essayist--but also a woman with personal joys and tragedies. Here, Reynolds, a close friend of Sayers, presents a convincing and balanced portrait of one of the 20th century's most brilliant, creative women. 30 b&w photos.
