RARA-AVIS: Russell James on Dorothy L. Sayers

From: T. Kent Morgan ( tkmorgan@shaw.ca)

I read with interest the comments about Russell James dissing Dorothy L. Sayers, but couldn't remember reading the actual piece. That's because Crime Time #40 didn't arrive from England until today. The issue is titled Dorothy L. Sayers and Margery Allingham, a Modern View of Two Giants of the Golden Age. For your enjoyment I am providing below the first sentence and the last sentence of the piece titled The Unreal World of Myth Sayers so there is no misunderstanding about how James feels about D-L.

Dorothy L. Sayers represents the worst of British crime writing.

For those in contact with today's world, her milky compound is sickly and out of date.

For people asking about novels by James, the latest is No One Gets Hurt published by The Do-Not Press.
