'Gramont offers up an explanation for Christie’s disappearance that is heart-breaking, and yet also hopeful'
The Christie Affair
Nina de Gramont
In 1926, novelist Agatha Christie, now recognised as one of the greatest mystery writers of all time, disappeared. She was missing for 11 days and claimed she couldn’t remember where she had been or why she had left her husband and young child – creating her own, real-life mystery which has never been solved. Written not from the perspective of Christie, but from that of her husband’s mistress, The Christie Affair takes this piece of history and unravels it. Ranging from the Irish countryside to London and Harrogate, Gramont offers up an explanation for Christie’s disappearance that is heart-breaking, and yet also hopeful.

'You come away from reading it having learnt more about yourself and life than you expect'
Thirty Things I Love About Myself
Nobody quite has their life together but I think Nina Mistry could give us all a run for our money. While spending her 30th birthday in a police station, newly single of her own design, friendless, and preparing for the wrath of her family, she feels completely without hope. Until she turns to a book. From then on, Nina is changed. She becomes a living symbol of how to use a self-help book, how it can help and how it can also ruin everything. This book perfectly intertwines life lessons with a chaotic character and the beauty of Indian culture within Britain. You come away from reading it having learnt more about yourself and life than you expect.
