Millicent and Carla Fran, who have an awesome epistolary blog, write that Gaudy Night by Dorothy Sayers is their favorite book. It is certainly my favorite thinking woman's romance, and I readily admit to reading Sayers more for Harriet Vane than for anything like mystery or its structure. Oddly, I can't read Gaudy Night right now, because so much of it is about the life of the mind in academia, which isn't going so well for me right now. I think it will be an important sign of something when I can get back to it.
