Have loved her books since I was a teenager (now 56!) and keep reading the few I own and still discover new bits a have missed before!
I still remember the surprise and heartache I felt when I discovered that she had passed away. I cherish her novels and keep them close at hand (and close at heart). Please keep me informed on any gatherings in her honor. I live in NYC and would be happy to attend any gatherings near (or far).
[Robin, the closest gathering to you last year was in Boston. We'll pass your details on.]
I imagine that nearly every single person that writes anything about Dorothy Dunnett feels as I do ... her writing is superlative, her history second to none and her characters are walking around still. Thank you for the gift that you've given me.
My reading life changed completely when I came across Dorothy Dunnett's books on Amazon. They bring out feelings of wonder and awe when reading them and they seem to remain inside my heart and head all the time.
Anything more would be superfluous.
I read Queen's Play in 196something, I have reread all of both series over and over and will continue to do so despite the fact that my copies are falling apart, and never have I found anyone who writes like Dorothy Dunnett. And never have I convinced anyone to read the books: a fact that I find very strange. I find new insights into behaviour and character that I did not see when I was seventeen. That fact fascinates me as well.
