Dame Agatha Christie Mallowan
This site on Hercule Poirot needs to honor his creator, Dame Agatha Christie. Poirot and Miss Marple wouldn't entertain our lives without the life of Agatha Christie. Hailed as the "Queen of
Crime", Agatha Christie has been only sold out by William Shakespeare and the Holy Bible. With billions of her books in print the world over, many critics regard her as the principal author
of the Golden Age of Mystery. She seems to be the only mystery writer that is read in high schools throughout the United States, thanks to her spectacular novel And Then There Were
None/Ten Little Indians. She is the creator of The Mousetrap, the longest-running play of modern theatre. Lest we forget, Christie is the creator of two of fiction's
most popular and recognizable sleuths: Poirot and Marple. Did we already mention that?
So, to also honor Christie, this section of HPC is devoted to her. Her life. Her writings. The aim here is to educate and enlighten all readers about Agatha Christie. That way, we may
better appreciate her contribution to literature.
In this section devoted to Dame Agatha Christie Mallowan, you can read a little about her holiday home Greenway House (with a photo gallery) or read about
her famous disappearance.
To get into the "writing mind" of Christie, there's a separate section here titled "Style & Writing". Click any of the links under "Style & Writing" (or use the
quick links to the right) to learn more about her creative process, style, and writings.
