Dorothy L Sayers was born in Oxford in 1893, and was both a classical scholar and a graduate in modern languages. As well as her popular Lord Peter Wimsey series, she wrote several religious plays, but considered her translations of Dante's Divina Commedia to be her best work. She died in 1957.From AudioFile:
This collection of Dorothy Sayers stories delivers the essence of her exasperatingly aristocratic, yet immensely able and likable detective, Lord Peter Wimsey. More fanciful whimsy has seldom been created than the quipping sleuth, and hearing Ian Carmichael's portrayal is to experience the absolute, giddy truth of Wimsey. While nobly rendering all members of Wimsey's world, Carmichael's Lord Peter is imbued with a vivid essence near impossible to catch through mere reading of written word. The final story, "Talboys," exercises Lord Wimsey's detecting ability in defense of his young son, accused of petty theft. It is an especially sparkling gem of wit and mischievousness, mirroring father and son, only enhanced by the talent of Ian Carmichael. P.H.M.
