About this Recording

PEARSON, H.: Arthur Conan Doyle, A Life (Abridged)

Conan Doyle (1859–1930) will always be remembered for the character of Sherlock Holmes, but he was a prolific writer—of short stories, of science fiction and historical fiction—including The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard. In his comprehensive biography, Pearson considers how his life is reflected in his books—including his background as a doctor and his enduring (and public) belief in spiritualism.
