This is a library book as I’m still managing to avoid actually buying more books until I make a serious dent in my TBR pile. In fact I had no intention of even looking at library books but when I returned some the other week I couldn’t resist having a look at the ‘new books’ shelves.
However, I think that if you are really into Agatha Christie then this might be a book that you would really want to own rather than just borrow.
John Curran is an archivist and he had the job of deciphering Christie’s private notebooks. Apparently her handwriting was terrible, and there were 73 of them to go through, so it was no mean feat.
It’s just interesting to see her jottings and ideas for various books, alternative endings and such.
The book includes two previously unpublished Poirot stories.
