Dorothy L Sayers, Gaudy Night

I caught repeats of the Edward Petherbridge-Harriet Walter series, and it really stood out this time how little that adaptation of Gaudy Night made sense (even in the performances are so first-class). So I reread, and they must have taken out about two-thirds of the plot. To the extent that it's practically incomprehensible. Weird.

Did I say how much I enjoyed the two DLSs that you lent me? Now champing at the bit for more, but will cool my ardour by awaiting their appearance at my local Oxfam bookshop (which has a far better crime section than the local bookshops).

I thought I should have sent you away with more of them - all of them! They are the kind of thing that turns up very regularly at second hand bookshops, but I can keep an eye out at this end, if you like.

Thanks, but I hope they should be easy enough to find even in the depth of Mattville!
