Book news: The Agatha Christie Miscellany

The Agatha Christie Miscellany

There’s another new book on Agatha Christie out this month – looks like more of an introduction than a deeper analysis. According to the publisher’s blurb:

This miscellany will explore the fascinating and enigmatic world created by the undisputed ‘Queen of Crime’, Agatha Christie. Examining her place in literary history, her books and her iconic characters, including Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, this unique collection will feature all of the facts, trivia and quotes that feature in Christie’s legendary stories and the subsequent film and television adaptations. The Agatha Christie Miscellany will also delve into the secrets, mysteries and tricks that made her the most sensational and successful mystery writer of her time. How is it that she managed to keep us guessing the murderer until the very end? We look at her life and the influences it had on her writing.
Entertaining and informative this miscellany will, above all, unravel the secrets of Agatha Christie’s phenomenal success.

    Sounds intriguing…. I do sometimes wonder if there’s anything new to say. I feel I’ve read every book on her, and there are no more surprises. But I’d love to be proved wrong!

    It’s interesting in the light of Curt’s comment about ‘The Female Gentleman’ (last post) – maybe the crime queens really have been ‘done to death’…
