Corris, Tey and The Daughter of Time….
Peter Corris, “the godfather of Australian crime”, has died at the age of 76. His name may not be all that well known to us (well, to me, I confess) but he was clearly a towering force in the literature of his home country. When I received notice of this obituary, it was stated that he had read and commented on Josephine Tey’s Daughter of Time. But the article, when I actually read it, doesn’t mention this at all.
So I went a-hunting, and found this article.
It isn’t conclusive by any means, but does show how influential Tey’s wonderful book has been, and continues to be.
