Description

Meet Lord Peter Wimsey in this Deluxe Edition with Original Annotations and Exclusive Essays!

One of the great mystery novelists of her time, Dorothy L. Sayers portrayed the rich and poor, urban and rural Britain of the 1920s and '30s with a gimlet eye sharpened by her Oxford education (and at a time when few women were admitted there).

Published in 1923, "Whose Body?" was a book "good" women writers would never dream of writing. One clue about the nude man's body found in the bath was too suggestive and had to be toned down before publication. Other scenes reflected Sayers' love of the macabre Grand Guignol theatre.

The Britain that was familiar to readers of that time has vanished, but you can experience it afresh only in this edition from Peschel Press. "The Complete, Annotated Whose Body?" contains more than 500 footnotes, describing unusual words, common expressions, cultural references, cultural institutions, objects, and people. There are also three maps created exclusively for this book describing important locations, and original essays about Sayers, her world, and the creation of Lord Peter.

"The Complete, Annotated Whose Body?" makes a unique gift for a Sayers fan, and a wonderful reintroduction to the compelling world she created.
