Notes

First edition, first impression of Agatha Christie's semi-autobiographical novel, the second written under the pseudonym of Mary Westmacott. Christie's adoption of a pseudonym was an interesting psychological manoeuvre that allowed her license for self-revelation not to be found in her detective fiction or even in her autobiography. Christie even adopted a different handwriting style for presentation copies of the book.
