Agatha Christie

by LouiseTopp

Torquay is the Capital of 'Agatha Christie' Country. The world's most celebrated mystery writer was born in the town in 1890 & used many places in Devon in her best selling mysteries! On the 'Agatha Christie Mile' one can see the picture of Miss Marple's detective work, stay at Agatha Christie's honeymoon hotel, vist exclusive exhibitions of her life at Torquay Museum & Torre Abbey & solve a mystery of your own!! Furthermore there are three marvellous trails around the coast & countryside of South Devon, totally dedicated to the life and work of Agatha Christie. Leaflets & books giving more information are obtainable at the Torquay Tourist Information Office.

Agatha Christie was born (1890-1976). Her first script, 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles', was discarded at least six times by publishers before at length getting accepted. Its publication in 1920 introduced the world to Hercule Poirot, one of the most celebrated of all names in detective fiction. Persistence, as well as her ingenious plots, made Agatha Christie the foremost writer of detective novels in the 20th century. She was born Agatha Miller on Sept. 15, 1890, in Torquay, Devon, England, & educated at home by her mother. While working as a volunteer nurse during World War I, she began her first book. Major recognition came with the publication of 'The Murder of Roger Ackroyd' in 1926. There followed about 75 thriving novels, 25 featuring Poirot. Her other famous detective, Miss Jane Marple, first appeared in 'Murder at the Vicarage' (1930). Presentation of Christie's mystery play, 'The Mousetrap' (1952), set a world record for the longest permanent run at one theatre. Among works tailored for film were 'Witness for the Prosecution' (published 1953), 'Murder on the Orient Express' (1934), & 'Death on the Nile' (1937).
