Agatha: The Real Life of Agatha Christie

This looks like an interesting project – a new ‘graphic biography’ of Agatha Christie, published this month by SelfMadeHero (who have previously published some Sherlock Holmes graphic novels and Donald Westlake’s The Hot Rock).

Agatha_Title Slide_3Written by Anne Martinetti and Guillaume Lebeau, and illustrated by Alexandre Franc, the 128-page book uses with Christie’s infamous disappearance as a way into her life story.


Agatha-Graphic-Novel‘Revealing a side to Christie that will startle and delight many readers, Agatha introduces us to a free-spirited and thoroughly modern woman who, among other things, enjoyed flying, travel and surfing.’

If you can get to London on 11th May, the co-authors will be discussing Agatha at the Institut Francais.

    Hmmm…That’s definitely an innovative take on Christie’s biography! It’ll be interesting to see how it’s received.

    Very tempted by that event on the 11th…could be interesting to see what they have to say about this, because it’s a very different approach…hmmmm….


  3. This looks interesting! I was fortunate to have visited her Devon home a few years ago. It’s kept as it was when she was in residence, down to the little covered china dishes on her night table with lily of the valley on them, her favorite flower. When you step into the bedroom, a tape recording comes on in her voice, a snippet from a radio interview. Well done. She was a thoroughly modern woman.
