DJ´s Bait in the Box # 41

[This perfect box for today´s book was sent to me by
Tim Duncan, Edinburg]


Not exactly new, this one, but you do remember it, don´t you? If not, it must be time to read it again.

“Well, sir, it´s about this here grave. I thought I better come and see you, being as it´s a church matter, like. You see, when Dick and me come to open it up, we found a corpus a-lying inside of it, and Dick says to me ….”

“… It´s a man´s corpus, that´s what it is, and it du seem as though it didn´t have no right to be there…”


The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Friday.

Tomorrow´s post: Danish guest blogger!

Cool box. Have a great time at your writing course!

Margot Kinberg sagde ...

Dorte - Thanks, as always, for this game : ). My wimsical clue for this one is that the title mentions something most of us only need one of...

Dorte H sagde ...

Care: thank you!

Margot: I like that! LOL

R. T. sagde ...

Dorte: I'm reminder of an American song with a lyric that goes something like "The bells are ringing, for me and my gal." I'm also reminded of an old adage about "a stitch in time" saves something or other.

Dorte H sagde ...

R.T.: oh, how brilliant my readers are this week :D

Elizabeth Spann Craig sagde ...

Brilliant--except for me again! I think I must be memory-handicapped. :) And then, funnily enough, it will turn out that I've READ the book! More than once, sometimes. I've got some problems with my little gray cells (with excuses to Hercule Poirot.) But I have fun following along as everyone comes up with clues. :)

Dorte H sagde ...

Elizabeth: it is good to see that people can enjoy the game even without being able to guess it. If you know the author (and you probably do), Margot´s first clue should be rather helpful, however.

Philip sagde ...

Plain Bob Minor would recognize this at once, uncomely as he may be.

Jose Ignacio Escribano sagde ...

Dorte it sound familiar but really I have no clue.

Dorte H sagde ...

Jose: it is not unlikely that you know it, but let´s se.

Philip: oh, I think that clue rings a bell. :D
