Header is because I'm reading Gaudy Night now. It's the first novel I've ever read by Dorothy Sayers. I have to hand it to her for not writing down to the audience. Anyone who bought the book hoping it would quickly bear down into the murdery stuff must have been sorely disappointed. But her portrayal of a reunion at a women's college at Oxford is engaging and convincing. Jeez, and these were the second class citizens!
