Biography

Dorothy L. Sayers, the greatest of the golden age detective novelists, was born in Oxford in 1893.

    Great but outrageously expensive

    Great to have Sayers Wimsey as an e-book but $10.19 is twice what it should cost. These stories were included in the papetback "Lord Peter" in the 70's for $3.95. The 'missing' 3 stories are published by themselves in another $10.19 book in this series. Many books in this new e-book book series are still available as $7.95 and a new paperback series is forthcoming for less tha $10.

    9 out of the original 12 tales well ready Ian Carmichael

    It is a Golden Age when Acorn Media is turning out Poirot and Wimsey videos and Audio Partners is doing the same for books on tape with the very same stars, David Suchet and Ian Carmichael. Now we have from the latter company a complete reading of 9 short mysteries from Dorothy Sayers' anthology <Lord Peter Views the Body> (61218). Strictly speaking, this is not quite an 'Unabridged' set of 6 cassettes since the original book holds 12 tales. One of them is based around a crossword puzzle, so I can see how very difficult that would be to work into a reading. Still we should be grateful to have the 9 Audio Partners has treated us to. One of them will recall 'House of Wax,' except this time it is metal plating ('The Abominable History of the Man with Copper Fingers'). Most of the stories have a light tone, as you can tell from the titles: 'The Fantastic Horror of the Cat in the Bag,' 'The Undignified Melodrama of the Bone of Contention,' 'The Piscatorial Farce of the Stolen Stomach,' and so on. To me, the most interesting were 'The Bibulous Business of a Matter of Taste' in which two (or is it three?) Peter Wimseys show up to purchase secret documents, and 'The Unsolved Puzzle of the Man with No Face' in which the first half is concerned with Wimsey's theoretical reconstruction of a murder as reported in the papers and the second with the actual facts. The most unusual is the last, 'The Adventurous Exploit of the Cave of Ali Baba,' in which Wimsey comes very close to being killed when he poses as a member of a secret organization. Carmichael, as the movie ads say, IS Peter Wimsey---and his voice is flexible enough to be all the other characters as well. Beautifully done.
