Personal Quote:

I met Agatha Christie. People say she couldn't write, but I doubt they've read her beautiful autobiography. She had more imagination than the rest of us by far, misleading you from page one. Tremendous achievement. I've tried to do that in a way. But I can't stick some writers - Dorothy L. Sayers. Wouldn't have worried if she'd written nothing. See more »
