All I Want for Christmas Is... (3)

All I Want for Christmas Is... is a feature/meme sponsored by Danya at A Tapestry of Words where we choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto our wishlists. And she'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get! So if you want to make your own blog post about it, please link up at Danya's site.

Here's mine for this week:

Dorothy L. Sayer's Love All/Busman's Honeymoon by Alzina S Dale (ed) : (synopsis from Amazon review by "A Customer"): fans of Dorothy L Sayers' Vane-Wimsey novels will fine Love All a delightful change of pace. The companion play to the dramatic version of the novel Busman's Honeymoon in this edition, Love All takes a very different approach to male-female relations. While she creates for Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey a fulfilling personal and professional relationship in Busman's Honeymoon, Sayers suggests in Love All that women can find emotional fulfillment, financial security, and artistic challenges all on their own.

Why I want it: I love the writing of Sayers. So far, I have not found anything by her that I do not like. I've read all the Wimsey novels, including Busman's Honeymoon and I'm very curious to see/read the play version. I understand that there are some differences. I am also intrigued by the description of Love All and would like to check it out.

(No photo available for this one....which may mean that Santa will have a hard time finding it to put under my tree.....)

Thanks for linking up, Bev! I've heard good things about Dorothy Sayers' books before. Hope Santa can find this one even without the photo :D

I haven't read any of Sayers' books but the way you write about makes me want to look them up!

I haven't heard of this book but it sounds very intriguing. Makes me want to look its photo cover. :)

@Reading Lassie: if you find a cover, I'd be interested in seeing it. I hunted online, but came up empty.
