Dorothy L. Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893. She published her first detective novel, Whose Body?, in 1923, introducing Lord Peter Wimsey to the world. Ten more 'Wimsey' novels and four collections of short stories followed, as well as many other works of crime fiction, non-fiction and plays. Her translation of Dante's Divine Comedy is highly acclaimed, as is her cycle of twelve plays on the life of Jesus, The Man Born to be King, which was broadcast on the BBC Home Service in 1941-1942. She died in 1957, leaving behind notes and fragments of an unfinished 'Wimsey' story - Thrones, Dominations - which was subsequently completed by Jill Paton Walsh and published in 1998. Paton Walsh has since written three other Lord Peter Wimsey books.From AudioFile:
Ian Carmichael personified Lord Peter Wimsey for a generation of public television viewers. His affection for the brainy, finicky, aristocratic detective is clear in this reading. In addition to creating a well-drawn Wimsey, he imbues solid Bunter with the humor and patience that Sayers blended into his personality. All the other characters in this tale of countryside bell ringing gone wrong are so perfectly vivid that listeners may find themselves chortling with pleasure as they listen. The only quibble is that Carmichael's reading voice is the same as the one he gives to Lord Peter, leading to some confusion between the narrative and the dialogue spoken by Wimsey. But no matter, this is still a long evening's pleasure. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
