A Baroness on Barrenness

Phyllis Dorothy James was born in Oxford one hundred years ago today - August 3rd 1920. By the time she died in 2014, she was the undisputed successor to Agatha Christie and Dorothy L Sayers as the "Queen of Crime", although she did not care for either comparison ("Such a bad writer," she sniffed of Dame Agatha). In her ninety-four years P D James did a lot of other things, too: She was a Conservative peeress in the House of Lords, and her time in the bureaucracy (she had been a Home Office civil servant) made her an effective chairman of things - whether of the Booker Prize for Fiction, or committees concerned with more earthbound endeavors. I had a slight acquaintance with her during my time at the BBC's "Kaleidoscope", where we used to ...

A Basic Chahar-Bagh

Welcome to Part Nineteen of our current Tale for Our Time, my sequel to and contemporary inversion of Anthony Hope's Ruritanian bestseller of 1894. By the way, if you've a chum who's a fan of classic fiction in audio form, don't forget our Mark Steyn Club gift membership. In tonight's episode of The Prisoner of Windsor, our penniless Ruritanian covering for the British prime minister finds himself making an unexpected visit to Frogmore Mausoleum (at right). If you recall my serialization of the original, you may remember the moment when Rudolf Rassendyll, playing the King of Ruritania, extracts a promise from old Marshal Strakencz: "Marshal, I'm leaving Strelsau for a few days. Every evening I will send a courier to you. If for three days ...
