The Facts and Fiction behind the World's Greatest Crime Writer. First edition. First edition, 1999. Hardback. 127pp. Dust jacket in a protective sleeve. To many, the terribly English world created by Agatha Christie is part of the myth of a more civilized era. Her most famous and baffling mysteries remain as popular as ever and her ingenious construction of whodunits carried forward the genre of crime fiction, laying the foundation for the Golden Age of the detective novel. Christie herself was a discreet, private and ladylike person, avoiding publicity and disliking celebrity. Yet her own life was far from dull. She travelled widely and in 1926 she hit the headlines when she disappeared, creating a mystery around her own life as intriguing as any of her plots. This book looks at this and other factors that shaped her life, providing a colourful and informative look at one of the world's most popular authors. Book near fine. Dust jacket near fine and unclipped.
