He has since worn many hats, each more fantastic than the last, as soda jerk, a paper flower maker in an amusement park, a pianist for a senior citizens’ show tunes choir, an English teacher, a glass artist, and a novelist.

Just as one doesn't turn to Wodehouse for deep thought or characterization, one doesn't pick up a Thorne Smith novel hoping for trenchant realism. From the former author we expect a merry cavalcade of simpletons, wise butlers, tart aunts, and cow cre...more

Miss Pym Disposes is a curiously tough nut to classify among Josephine Tey's crime stories. There's no face-to-face murder, so it's not really a murder mystery. Miss Pym herself is a self-taught psychologist, so the novel's not a detective story per...more
