The welcome return of a real Festival favourite. Literary and cultural historian Lucy turns her attention to one of our greatest writers. Agatha Christie presented herself as a retiring Edwardian lady of leisure when she was anything but. With access to personal letters and papers, Lucy’s biography Agatha Christie: A Very Elusive Woman is authoritative and entertaining and makes us realise what an extraordinary pioneer Agatha was.
