From Holmes to Sherlock: The Story of the Men and Women Who Created an Icon For Kindle
In From Holmes to Sherlock, Swedish author and Sherlock Holmes expert Mattias Bostr?m recreates the full story behind the legend for the first time. From a young Arthur Conan Doyle sitting in a Scottish lecture hall taking notes on his medical professor's powers of observation to the pair of modern-day fans who brainstormed the idea behind the TV sensation Sherlock, from the publishing world's first literary agent to the Georgian princess who showed up at the Conan Doyle estate and altered a legacy, the narrative follows the men and women who have created and perpetuated the myth. It includes tales of unexpected fortune, accidental romance, and inheritances gone awry, and tells of the actors, writers, readers, and other players who have transformed Sherlock Holmes from the gentleman amateur of the Victorian era to the odd genius of today. Told in fast-paced, novelistic prose, From Holmes to Sherlock is a singular celebration of the most famous detective in the world-a must-read for newcomers and experts alike.Read by Shaun Grindell.Description: 14 audio discs (17 hr.) : digital ; 4 3/4 in.
