A footnote in Lucy Worsley's A Very British Murder: The Story of a National Obsession. This is in the chapter about Dorothy L. Sayers:
* To hear Gaudy Night written off as the. Rigid Julian Symons does in Bloody Murder (1972) is not unusual, but it remains infuriating. When I read the page where he states that 'Gaudy Night is essentially a "woman's novel" full of the most tedious pseudo-serious chat between the characters that goes on for page after page', I threw Mr Symon's book on the floor, and stamped upon it.


(And boo to Apple's autocorrect, which suggested "woman's snivel" when I had typed "woman's novel" CORRECTLY.)
