Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786414545, Paperback)

"'The new Sayers' is not merely admirable; it is adorable. There were, in Miss Sayers's more recent books, signs that a strange element was struggling to be free. In one this element seemed like philosophy; in one like fantasy. It has now become perfectly freed itself, and become perfectly united with her other capacities. The Nine Tailors is consequently not a tale of murder, but an experience of life."--Charles Williams, review of The Nine Tailors by Dorothy Sayers, January 17, 1934. English editor, literary critic, poet, novelist, theologian, and Inkling, Charles Williams (1885-1945) wrote popular-press reviews of detective fiction in its golden age of popularity (early thirties) for such newspapers as The Westminster Chronicle & News-Gazette and The Daily Mail. This book presents all of Williams' published reviews of detective fiction--covering works by Agatha Christie, Sax Rohmer, Ellery Queen, Dashiel Hammett, and E. Phillips Oppenheim, to name a few. It begins with a discussion of Williams as a detective fiction reviewer, then presents the reviews year-by-year, from 1930 to 1935, and concludes with a discussion of the end of the golden age of detective fiction. An appendix lists the authors that Williams reviewed, which books were reviewed, the date that they were reviewed, and additional information on each author.
