Summary
"Unlike much of the criticism which chooses to focus on a few canonical texts, this detailed textual analysis of Christie's oeuvre demonstrates exactly how quietly innovatory Christie was in relation to gender, beginning in 1920 and concluding in the early 1970s. Makinen questions Christie's reputation as merely a supreme puzzle-plotter, suggesting that her literary innovations in relation to femininity are equally important."--BOOK JACKET
