Conundrums for the Long Week-End: England, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Lord Peter Wimsey.
Sayers created her most popular character, Lord Peter, during "the long week-end" between the First and Second World Wars. Her work reflected the social upheaval of the times - the rise of democracy, the slide of the privileged aristocracy, and the struggle for women's equality. McGregor and Lewis examine the literary, social, and historical context of Lord Peter Wimsey. Handsome dust jacket. Kent State University Press, 2000. Publ at $35.00. NEW. $24.00
