BEGIN HERE by Dorothy L. Sayers


by Dorothy L. Sayers

Pub Date: May 1st, 1941
Publisher: Harcourt, Brace & World

It seems to me it is almost too bad this book is being published, at this time and in this form. It was written in 1939, during the period of the so-called "phoney war" and its tempo and spirit reflect that period. Footnotes and addenda cannot alter that atmosphere, nor do the charges to waiting England ring true today. The result is a somewhat confused statement of faith, through which are interjected suggestions for activity projects, preparation for peace, re-integration of society. However, Dorothy Sayers' name, in this connection, may arouse some curiosity as to what she has to contribute.
