Dorothy L. Sayers (1893-1957) was an English writer best known for her crime novels, poems and short stories. She grew up in a small village and attended boarding school before receiving a scholarship to Somerville College, Oxford. Sayers graduated in 1915 and published her first collection of poetry OP. I in 1916. Years later, she began working on the crime story Whose Body?, which would become her most celebrated work. It features the introduction of amateur detective, Lord Peter Wimsey, who appears in more than 10 of her novels.
Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was an English author of mystery fiction whose status in the genre is unparalleled. A prolific and dedicated creator, she wrote short stories, plays and poems, but her fame is due primarily to her mystery novels, especially those featuring two of the most celebrated sleuths in crime fiction, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Ms. Christie's novels have sold in excess of two billion copies, making her the best-selling author of fiction in the world, with total sales comparable only to those of William Shakespeare or The Bible. Despite the fact that she did not enjoy cinema, almost 40 films have been produced based on her work.
