US Rights have gone to St. Augustine’s Press for Jeremy Black’s The Importance of Being Poirot.
Black offers a guided tour through the mind of Agatha Christie and life during the Great World Wars. Hercule Poirot as a character is masterfully imagined, but Black shows us how he is inseparable from Christie’s turbulent and changing world. He also illuminates significant social commentary in Christie’s fiction.
The book will be published in hardback from September 2021 with a delightful original painted artwork for its cover.
