Like mysteries ? Have you read Dorothy Sayers’ mystery novels?
Dorothy Sayers is a writer often associated with C.S. Lewis and the Inklings, who wrote many books for Christian audiences. She considered her best work to be her translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy.
We recently posed the question of where to start with her mystery novels to David Neuhouser, who is a lover of mysteries and Scholar in Residence at Taylor University’s Center for the Study of C.S. Lewis and Friends (and Professor Emeritus at TU). Neuhouser has taught courses on Sayers, Lewis, Wendell Berry and perhaps his favorite, George Macdonald.
Read this one next, it is a good follow up to GAUDY NIGHT.
The title is taken from William Cowper’s translation of Book II of Homer’s Iliad: “The vulture’s maw / Shall have his carcase, and the dogs his bones.”
