Sophie Hannah - Rye Arts Festival
Talk by the author Sophie Hannah who has written new Poirot crime books
Sophie Hannah is an internationally renowned writer of psychological crime fiction; published in 49 languages. Plus, for good measure, she is a brilliant speaker, holding audiences with her humour! She was already renowned as a writer of her own fiction, but in 2014 her career took a new turn when she took on Agatha Christie! Not combatively, of course! She had the blessing of Agatha Christie’s family and estate, to write an entirely new Poirot novel. The Monogram Murders was an instant hit and a top five bestseller in 15 countries. Following the critical and sales success of her debut in the caring custody of the moustachioed Belgian sleuth, Sophie has gone on to write two more Poirot novels - Closed Casket and The Mystery of Three Quarters! And both immediately featured in The Sunday Times Top Ten bestsellers lists.
