Three by Tey (Book)

Davis, Dorothy Salisbury
September 1954
New Republic;9/20/54, Vol. 131 Issue 12, p17
This article discusses the book "Three by Tey," by Josephine Tey. A cadaver is a cadaver in any morgue, a corpse a corpse in any coffin. The difference lies not in the dead, but in the living; not in the sightless but in the viewers. Tey's talent was not changed with a name. Something particularly endearing leaps to mind out of one after another of them. All Tey's plots could have been written on the back of a match box. But her characters have the diversity of flame, and the sum of their impact is as irresistible.
