Agatha Christie’s Autobiography Re-released in Hardback


Agatha Christie’s autobiography focuses on her fascinating private life and allows readers inside the mind of the Queen of Crime. The autobiography takes readers through Christie’s early childhood at the end of the 19th century, through two marriages and two World Wars, and her experiences both as a writer and on archaeological expeditions with her second husband, Max Mallowan, Agatha shares the details of her varied and sometimes complex life with real passion and openness.

As if Christie’s writing, filled with passion and openness, wasn’t enough, this new edition has another delight in store for fans. In 2008, Christie’s grandson made a remarkable discovery—a box of old tape reels. These tapes contained recording of Christie telling her own story in a lively and spontaneous way that is sure to ensnare the listener. Complete with a CD of highlights from these priceless tapes, fans now have the opportunity to hear the Queen of Crime’s story in her own words.

Agatha Christie: An Autobiography is available in the UK from HarperCollins.
