The dapper, moustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head, curious mannerisms and inordinate respect for his own ‘little grey cells’ solved some of the twentieth century’s most puzzling crimes. But what do we really know about the eccentric genius underneath that fussy façade? Sometimes funny, often profound, and always revealing this book of quotes and comments, from more than fifty Poirot novels and short stories, gives an entertaining glimpse of the man behind the moustache, and the wit and wisdom of the Queen of Crime who created him.
In September we are celebrating Agatha Christie's 125th anniversary. Dame Agatha Christie was born on 15 September 1890.
