Agatha Christie con Little Grey Cells: The Quotable Poirot
Little Grey Cells
‘As usual, the little man has the last word!’―Agatha Christie, 1938
From the Back Cover
"My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world."
The dapper, moustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head, curious mannerisms and inordinate respect for his own 'little grey cells' solved some of the twentieth century's most puzzling crimes. But what do we really know about the eccentric genius underneath that fussy facade?
Sometimes funny, often profound, and always revealing, this book of quotes and comments from more than fifty Poirot novels and short stories gives an entertaining glimpse of the man behind the moustache, and the wit and wisdom of the Queen of Crime who created him.
Includes an exclusive essay by Agatha Christie on her love/hate relationship with her most famous creation.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
