It just happens to be what I am currently reading. It was kindly sent to me by Bev at My Reader's Block.
This post is not a review, that will come in a day or two.
Synopsis from the Christie website:
The Under Dog and Other Stories contains works from the early days of Christie's career, all featuring Hercule Poirot.
All the stories were published in British and American magazines between 1923 and 1926.
The title story appeared in book form in England for the first time in the 1960 collection, The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding.
The other stories were to appear again in 1974 in the British and American collections, Poirot's Early Cases.
Not published in the UK, this short story collection contains:
The Under Dog,
The Plymouth Express,
The Affair at the Victory Ball,
The Market Basing Mystery,
The King of Clubs,
The Submarine Plans,
The Adventure of the Clapham Cook,
The Cornish Mystery,
The LeMesurier Inheritance.
The edition sent to me by Bev was published in 1971 by Dell.
|The little green book|
The majority of my contributions have come from my "little green book", a rather dilapidated affair dating back to 1975 in which I have recorded 3152 titles, authors and dates of completion.
