About the Book

The autobiography of the queen of mystery, Agatha Christie.

Critical Praise

“This book proves as inspiring as it is charming and absorbing.” — Boston Globe

“Brisk and admirable….Capturing the experience of a generation too often made over-grim or over-glorious, it is the autobiography of a woman, not merely a writer.” — Los Angeles Times

“Especially welcome.” — Publishers Weekly

“Contains some wonderful treats....Christie writes with such wit and insight that all 542 pages fly.” — Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A fun read, full of detail about upper-crust life in the Victorian era and about Christie’s own surprise at finding herself a mystery novelist.” — Charlotte News & Observer

“The history of a unique upbringing in a time long gone. It’s a portrait of a childhood and young womanhood that vanished with World War I.” — Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“Christie writes with a wonderful dry wit. It is fascinating to see how people she met became characters in her novels.” — Daily American

“Joyful adventure….She brings the sense of wonder…to her extraordinary career.” — New York Times Book Review

“Agatha Christie is no longer merely one of my favorite writers. She is now one of my favorite people.” — Chicago Tribune

“A delightful autobiography….Warm, witty and discerning.” — Los Angeles Times

“Wonderfully easy to read and engrossing.” — The Times (London)

“Agatha Christie’s most absorbing mystery – the story of her own unusual life. She has put it all on record: her early romances; a broken (and a happy) marriage; strange events on the path to roaring success.” — Daily Mail (London)

“A wonderful book—written with a delight in the gradual unfolding of 75 years through the eyes of an exceptional old lady and writer.” — Financial Times (London)
