"Known to millions as the creator of Lord Peter Wimsey and the bestselling author of a dozen detective novels, Dorothy Leigh Sayers was in reality a complex woman-moved, she said, by a 'careless rage for life'. The elusive mystery of the real person behind the public figure makes Sayers an attractive choice for the biographer. It is her own distinctive voice, the fact that she is allowed to speak for herself through extensive quotation from the letters, which sets David Coomes' biography apart and makes it so memorable, so enjoyable, so honest."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
