‘Wonderfully easy to read and engrossing.’
‘The best thing she has ever written.’
‘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.’
‘A wonderful book – written with a delight in the gradual unfolding of 75 years through the eyes of an exceptional old lady and writer.’
From the Back Cover
"The best thing she has ever written."
WOMAN'S OWNAgatha Christie (1890-1976) is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. She wrote over 100 novels, short story collections and plays and her books have sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She has become quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history.
'An Autobiography' published in 1977 a year after her death, tells of her fascinating private life, from early childhood through two marriages and two World Wars, and her experiences both as a writer and on archaeological expeditions with her second husband, Max Mallowan. Not only does the book reveal the true genius of her legendary success, but the true story is vividly told and as captivating as one of her novels.

Top customer reviews
She is a very 'Victorian' woman, yet modern at the same time! She has an amazing recollection of her childhood and an amazing insight into children's minds. She doens't talk about all her books, because she doesn't remember writing all of them, but it was interesting to see how some of them came about.
Her visits to Iraq with her second husband to archaeological sites I found as absorbing as she obviously did herself as she became a member of the team.
Well worth a read
