I’ve been having a little Heyer-a-thon this week.
First The Corinthian, which I hadn’t read in some years, having decided, on a first read, that it was a little annoying. You can blame Bee Ridgway for this week’s Heyer binge: she spoke so glowingly of The Corinthian, that I had to go back and revisit it. There are some truly brilliant comic moments….
As is always the way with Heyer, once you pop, you can’t stop. (Or something like that.) From there, I moved on to The Quiet Gentleman, whose hero manages to be quite effective despite his soft tone.
After my experience with The Corinthian, I may have to go back and re-read Faro’s Daughter, which is another one I wrote off back in my teens and haven’t read since. I’m beginning to think my teenage self may have been somewhat lacking in literary judgment.
Which is your favorite Heyer?
And what have you been reading this week?
