Agatha Christie Autograph Letter Signed on Book Titles in the United States

[ translate ]

Description

"Most books are given different titles in U.S.A. or used to be—it has been stopped now. Very tiresome it was for both readers and authors"

ALS, one page, 5.5 x 7, Winterbrook House letterhead, June 27, [1973]. Handwritten letter to "Mr. Stickley," offering some clarification on the titles of her books. In full: "Sorry I cannot help you much. I have never written a book called The Double Sin (possibly some odd short stories published in U.S.A. as a book). Murder She Said—title of a film—not a book. They do it with Mirrors—Remembered Death, possibly 'Sparkling Cyanide.' Most books are given different titles in U.S.A. or used to be—it has been stopped now. Very tiresome it was for both readers and authors." In fine condition, with light creasing to the right side. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope.
