About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh. After receiving a medical degree from Edinburgh University in 1881, he became an eye specialist in Southsea, with a distressing lack of success. Hoping to augment his income, he wrote his first detective story, A Study in Scarlet. Fifty-nine more Sherlock Holmes adventures followed.

Michael Dirda is a Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic for the Washington Post. He is the author of two collections of literary journalism and several books on authors and reading, including On Conan Doyle: Or, The Whole Art of Storytelling, which received the 2012 Edgar Award in the Best Critical/Biographical category.

Reviews

"Every writer owes something to Holmes."
--T. S. Eliot

"[Holmes] is probably the only literary creation since the creations of Dickens which has really passed into the life and language of the people."
--G. K. Chesterton -- T.S. Eliot
