mirrorshard: A book growing from a tree branch, captioned "Books where fruit should be". (Books where fruit should be)

I finished The Nine Tailors last night, and I'd forgotten just how incredibly bleak and affecting the ending is - and how Sayers does it through what she doesn't write.

Knowing rather more about Wimsey's PTSD than I did the last time I read it helps me understand the book more, but having experienced it myself makes it hit home all the harder, with a kind of helpless gut-wrenching empathy, and brings the arc of the book around to completion in much the same way as the Great Belzoni would treat an iron bar.
