About the Author

Edmund Crispin (1921-1978) was the pseudonym of Robert Bruce Montgomery (usually credited as Bruce Montgomery), an English crime writer and composer. Montgomery wrote nine detective novels and two collections of short stories under the pseudonym Edmund Crispin (taken from a character in Michael Innes's Hamlet, Revenge!). The stories feature Oxford don Gervase Fen, who is a Professor of English at the university and a fellow of St Christopher's College, a fictional institution that Crispin locates next to St John's College. Fen is an eccentric, sometimes absent-minded, character reportedly based on the Oxford professor W. E. Moore.

Reviews

"A classic detective story and a ludicrous literary farce." - Guardian

"One of the last exponents of the classical English detective story ... elegant, literate, and funny." - The Times

"The Case of the Gilded Fly couldn't be more British if it came packaged with fish and chips." - New York Sun

"I very much enjoy Edmund Crispin." - P.D. James
