9780711235632: Agatha Christie at Home

Agatha Christie was the author of over eighty novels and over a dozen plays, including The Mousetrap, the longest continuously running play in theatrical history. Her books have been translated into more languages than the works of Shakespeare. Agatha Christie's first home was at Ashfield in Torquay, a house that she retained for nearly half a century, until she sold it in 1938 in order to buy Greenway, her 'dream house' on the River Dart. She spent all her summers there till she died in 1976. It was, she wrote: 'the loveliest house in the world.' Now owned by the National Trust, Greenway was opened to the public in 2009. Both Devon homes, which featured in several of her novels and stories, were central to Agatha's life, but she also loved the process of acquiring and planning houses in other places - from Sunningdale to Baghdad: at one time, before the Second World War, she owned eight properties in London. Her enthusiasm for buying, restoring and decorating houses is one of the lesser-known aspects of her life, but one that was very important to her. Agatha Christie at Home - illustrated with photos of her life, her homes and of the Devon she loved - recounts this side of her life, and its author, Hilary Macaskill, writes about some of the houses Agatha Christie lived in, her relationship with the staff who ran them, and her love of domesticity. Illustrated with rarely-seen archive images and evocative photographs of Greenway and the surrounding countryside, Agatha Christie at Home provides an insight into the life and work of a much-loved author.

Recensione:

An invaluable resource to anyone who has an interest in the settings in Agatha Christie's books.

( Devon Life)

Ms Macaskill handles her material with elegance and a light touch. Country Life Place was always important to Christie and Devon provided many of the setting for her mysteries. Hilary Macaskill weaves them into the narrative of this gloriously illustrated book as she explores their influence on her writing.

( Good Book Guide)

A must for Christie fans but also a good read for those interested in the social history and interiors of a bygone age.

( Country Living)

With photos of Christie and her family, including rare archive material, Hilary Macaskill's tome sheds light on this prolific author and her faded upstairs-downstairs era.
