Agatha Christie: First Lady of Crime

Agatha Christie: First Lady of Crime

Publisher : Orion Publishing Co
SKU: 9781474619448
R 204,00
From Poirot to Miss Marple, The Mousetrap to Witness for the Prosecution - a fascinating look at the life and work of Agatha Christie, the world's most successful and popular crime writer.
November, 2020
Includes a new introduction from Sophie Hannah, bestselling author of THE MONOGRAM MURDERS Agatha Christie was not only the biggest selling writer of detective stories the world has ever known, she was also a mystery in herself, giving only the rarest interviews, declining absolutely to become any sort of public figure, and a mystery too in the manner in which she achieved her astonishing success. H R F Keating, a crime novelist and respected reviewer of crime fiction, brought together a dozen distinguished writers from both sides of the Atlantic to throw light on this double mystery. Some analyse the art itself; some explain the reasons for her success, not just the books, but also in film and theatre. The approaches are penetrating, affectionate, enthusiastic, analytical, funny - even critical. Together, they give an almost unique insight into the life and work of the First Lady of Crime.
