Whose Body?

By Sayers, Dorothy L




Whose Body? is the first novel written by Dorothy L. Sayers, and was first published in England by T. Fisher Unwin in 1923. This crime novel begins with the discovery of the naked body of a murder victim in the bathtub, and the confusion surrounding the identity of the victim. Sayers was a popular author in her lifetime, and is well known for feminist ideas, though she described here characterizations of both men and women as being descriptions of "ordinary human beings." Whose Body? is The first book of the Lord Peter Wimsey Series, which is popular among fans of detective stories still, almost a century after it was first published.

First editions can command up to $2,000.00 for the UK edition, and first U.S. editions, printed by Boni and Liverlight the same year, can range up to $1,500.00. This book remains highly collectible, as the first work of an important author and of an important series in the amateur detective genre. Common defects included damage to the cover and spine (of the book, not the victim in the story), and age-tanned pages.
