Dorothy L Sayers: A Biography – Death, Dante and Lord Peter Wimsey

Autor Colin Duriez
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 18 iun 2021
Dorothy L Sayers was a woman of contrasts.
A strong Christian, she had a baby by a man she did not love - out of wedlock. Possessing a fierce intellect, she translated Dante - and also created one of the most popular fictional detectives ever, in Lord Peter Wimsey.
With no new biographies on Sayers having been published for some time, Colin Duriez reassesses her, her life, her writings, her studies and her faith. Drawing on previously unpublished material, particularly her collected letters, he brings to life a fascinating woman.
