Nancy Mitford: Christmas Pudding


24 Festive Tasks: Door 15 – International Human Rights Day, Book:

Read a book featuring a strong female character (or characters), by an author from any minority group, a story about a minority overcoming their oppressors, or revolving around the rights of others either being defended or abused, a book set in New York City, or a book originally written in a language other than English and / or your mother tongue or by anyone not Anglo-Saxon.

As a Christmas book it only works so-so (there’s a Christmas party somewhere in the middle, but quite a bit of stuff before and after it, which is actually much more the focus of the book than said Christmas party), but it features one world class heavyweight dragon of a matriarch, so it works perfectly as my book for International Human Rights Day.

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
