Cindi (cindit-j) | 125 comments Dan wrote: "9. The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey"

Isn't this book incredible?! It shouldn't work...a man lying in a hospital bed comprising the main action...and yet is does! I love Tey! Wish she'd written more! (You can delete this if it interferes with your post numbering!)

Dan (djunger) | 105 comments Thanks for commenting -- and no worries on the post numbering! Yeah, I didn't know much about Richard III and got confused a lot at first, but the dialog between Grant and his nurses/friends/etc. made the book great. I hadn't read any Tey and I gather she died the year after this book, but I'll have to check out her earlier works.

Cindi (cindit-j) | 125 comments Her books are always surprising (a quality I find rare!). I like all her books, but "Brat Farrar" and "The Franchise Affair" are my other favorites. They are definitely worth reading!
