The Detective Story and Belief Systems: Dorothy Sayers

Catherine Kenny observed that “the novels of Dorothy L. Sayers demonstrate the curious affinity between detection and a belief system which holds that there is something fundamentally amiss in human relations  [or as Sayers said in Creed or Chaos], ‘that there is a deep interior dislocation in the very centre of human personality'”

Catherine Kenney (2013).
