New and Notes

Agatha Christie Recordings Discovered

From BBC News:

"A collection of previously unheard recordings of crime writer Agatha Christie talking about her life and work has surfaced in Devon after lying undiscovered for 40 years.

The reels of tape, over 13 hours long, were discovered by the author's grandson in a cardboard box during a spring clean-out at Christie's former home in Torquay.

They date back to the 1960s and are working notes for her autobiography which was published posthumously in 1977."

UPDATE: "Extracts from the recordings made by Agatha Christie were published on telegraph.co.uk by her Estate for 24 hours only and are no longer available" (telegraph.co.uk).
