If you love Agatha Christie you may be interested in, Agatha Christie: An Autobiography (first released in 1977) which is now available in an inexpensive trade paperback edition.

The beloved mystery writer sheds light on her past, including her youth growing up in Victorian England, her volunteer efforts during the Second World War, and her literary life, which includes her work habits and where the inspiration came from for her most famous characters Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple.

Along with the behind-the-scenes look into Christie's life, this new edition also features 24 pages of photos. An added feature is a special code to download newly discovered recordings of the author dictating parts of this very book.

An introduction by Mathew Prichard, Christie's grandson, explains how he discovered the tapes. For decades Agatha Christie kept her private life hidden from view, but this informative and entertaining autobiography not only broke the long silence but also gave her many fans a sense of how the author worked and what inspired her.
