What’s On Magazine spoke to Lucy to discus this incredible new book. Titled Agatha Christie: A Very Elusive Woman, Lucy Worsley’s new book is a ground-breaking biography of Agatha Christie. Published by Hodder & Stoughton, the book has entered the Sunday Times bestseller list at No. 2.
Agatha Christie was a modernist, an iconoclast, and a ground breaker, according to this excellent biography from historian Worsley. Worsley offers close readings of Christie’s work and presents a careful reframe of the novelist’s famous 1926 disappearance. Drawing on personal letters and modern criticism, Lucy Worsley manages to make her subject feel fresh and new. This is a must-read for Christie fans. – Publishers Weekly, (starred review).
