“My name is Hercule Poirot and I am probably the greatest detective in the world.”
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.
Includes an exclusive essay by Agatha Christie on her love/hate relationship with her most famous creation.
