Women Times Three
Writers, Detectives, Readers
Edited by Kathleen Gregory Klein
This volume explores the range of relationships among women writers, women detectives and women-centered mystery fiction, and women readers. Focusing on writers as diverse as Sara Paretsky, Joan Hess, Sarah Caudwell, P. D. James, Katherine V. Forrest, Mary Roberts Rinehart, Sue Grafton, D. R. Meredith, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Barbara Wilson, the authors analyze the development of detective fiction with a different agenda: the woman-authored woman detective.
The eleven essays concentrate new attention on the trio of reader, writer, and text when all three are modified by the terms "woman" and "mystery."
