It'll Play in Peoria

Josephine Tey is a mystery writer extraordinaire. She wrote during the Golden Age of British mystery (c. 1930 -1950) and yet she followed no formula and even broke some of the rules. She has an Inspector Alan Grant in several of her books and I like reading those mysteries. Imagine my delight and amazement to come across this sentence in the book I am reading at present:

“ . . . an alliance between one of Britain’s best-known personalities and one of America’s most admired photographers would produce a book that might, with luck, have equal interest for Weston-super-Mare and Lynchburg, Virginia.” (Tey, To Love and Be Wise)
