I'd forgotten him till these posts turned up... "Snobbery with violence", I see 
Alan Bennett said. Jolly good chaps and all that. Ugh.

But Alan Rickman's done an audiobook of one, that must be amazing, I'm tempted.

An awful warning of the fleetingness of literary fame and fortune. Ruth brought 
home a couple of aged murder mysteries from our club library. I am looking at 
the blurb on the back cover of one of them. There I see the portentous words

"a thriller in the Dornford Yates tradition"

With a name like that, how could an author be forgotten?
 
He may not be all that forgotten:
