孙子说:阿加莎·克里斯蒂厌烦了波洛

伦敦( 法新社) –谋杀悬念小说作家阿加莎·克里斯蒂厌倦了赫尔克里·波洛但在她出版商的压力下,继续写关于这个比利时侦探的故事,她的孙子透露。

克里斯蒂认为这个身材矮小,硬胡子的美食家是她的“面包和黄油(生活必需品)”,但会抱怨说不得不产生出“又一个波洛”,马修·普里查德告诉广播时代杂志。

“她从不缺乏写书的想法,但有一些想法不适合波洛,所以她非常渴望通过写新角色的不同故事来驱除脑海中的他。”他说。

“但是她的经纪人和出版商,他们负责资金,十分热忠于波洛-——他是她的最受欢迎的人物。”

吉尼斯世界记录说英国作家克里斯蒂是有史以来最畅销的的作家,卖了20亿多本书。

她的最著名的小说包括《东方快车谋杀案》( 934年),《尼罗河上的惨案》(1937年)和《破镜谋杀案》(1962年),她还写了戏剧《捕鼠器》(1952年)。

波洛和马普尔小姐是她最著名的反复出现的人物。

克里斯蒂在1976年85岁去世之前,把她最喜欢的作品的版权转签给了她的女儿和孙子。

“她是一个十分慷慨的人,当我九岁时她把‘捕鼠器’转签给了我,”普里查德说。

“我当时太年少而不懂得欣赏它,但现在它的商业史和我的手臂一样长。”

他第一次从她位于德文郡,英格兰西南部悬崖顶端的家中的架子上取出她的一本书时,他10岁。

“它不是我会为10岁小孩选的书。在‘无人生还’中有10起谋杀而且有些相当可怕。”他说。


 
Agatha Christie was sick of Poirot: grandson

LONDON (AFP) – Murder mystery writer Agatha Christie  was fed up with Hercule Poirot but kept on penning stories about the Belgian detective under pressure from her publishers, her grandson has revealed.

Christie considered the diminutive, stiff-moustached gastronome as her "bread and butter" but would grumble about having to churn out "yet another Poirot," Mathew Pritchard told Radio Times magazine.

"She was never short of ideas for books but some of these ideas were inappropriate for Poirot, so she was very keen to exorcise herself of him by writing different stories with new characters," he said.

"But her agents and publishers, who were in charge of the pounds and pence, were very keen on Poirot -- he was her most popular character."

Guinness World Records says British writer Christie is the best-selling author of all time, shifting more than two billion books.

Her most famous novels include "Murder on the Orient Express" (1934), "Death on the Nile" (1937) and "The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side" (1962) and she also penned the play "The Mousetrap" (1952).

Poirot and Miss Marple were her best-known recurring characters.

Christie signed over the rights of her favourite works to her daughter and grandson before her death at the age of 85 in 1976.

"She was a very generous person and when I was nine she signed 'The Mousetrap' over to me," Pritchard said.

"I was too young to appreciate it at the time, but it now has a business history as long as my arm."

He was 10 when he first took one of her books from the shelf at her cliff-top home in Devon, southwest England.

"It wasn't one I would choose for a 10-year-old. There are 10 murders in 'And Then There Were None' and some are pretty gruesome," he said.
