Description
This annotated collection of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's previously unpublished private correspondence offers unique insight into one of the world's most popular authors. Conan Doyle emerges from the shadow of Sherlock Holmes as a man whose character and exploits rival that of his famous creation.

"The three [editors] together amount to a formidable encyclopedia of Doyleiana, and their introduction and commentaries keep us oriented.... The editors also insert quotations from Conan Doyle's fiction for apt and amusing contrast.... Most of the letters in this volume are from Conan Doyle to his mother ... their relationship was close, and throughout her life she hoarded letters from her increasingly famous son. They are an invaluable resource, full of vivid incidental details.... They also demonstrate how casually Arthur Conan Doyle could bring a scene to life."Washington Post
