Agatha Christie Interview

In this interview, recorded for inclusion in another programme, Agatha Christie talks about her lack of formal education and how boredom during childhood led her to write the Mysterious Affair at Styles, which was completed when she was still in her 20s. She outlines her working methods and discusses why it is much easier to write plays than novels.

Agatha Christie received training as a singer and concert pianist in Paris, but her shyness prevented her from pursuing this as a career in a serious way.
