English crime writer of novels, short stories and plays.
Christie also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but is best remembered for her 80 detective novels and her successful West End theatre plays. Her works, particularly featuring detectives Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple, have given her the title the 'Queen of Crime' and made her one of the most important and innovative writers in the development of the genre.
Christie has been called — by the Guinness Book of World Records, among others — the best-selling writer of books of all time and the best-selling writer of any kind, along with William Shakespeare. Only the Bible is known to have outsold her collected sales of roughly four billion copies of novels.
This is a very fine signature in dark blue fountain pen ink on a 5.25" x 2" slip of paper. The slip has been laid to an album page at point, causing slight wrinkling/waviness of its extreme edges but overall condition is very good. Perfect for display mounting.
