Who am I?
Why did Kathryn love this book?
Agatha Christie is best known for her murder mystery stories but there was much more to the ‘Queen of Crime’.
She accompanied her archaeologist husband, Max Mallowan, on his digs in Iraq and Syria. Rather than sit back and think up puzzles for Poirot to solve, she became the official dig photographer, taking and developing images of the discoveries. She also helped clean, catalogue, and piece together the ancient artifacts.
Come, Tell Me How You Live is an account of her time on the digs. The book is self-deprecating, charming, and funny. I have spent a lot of time reading and researching Christie’s crime stories for my book. This book was an unexpected delight. I was smiling from the first to the last page.
