Summary Curtain Up Summary Curtain Up ä PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¼ Julius Green Agatha Christie is revered around the world for her books and the indelible characters she created Lesser known is her writing for the stage an extraordinary repertoire of plays that firmly established her as the most successful female dramatist of all time Now author Julius Green raises the curtain on Christie’s towering contribution to popular theatre an element of her work previously disregarded by biographers and historiansStarting with her childhood theatregoing experiences Curtain Up uncovers Christie’s first seri. Very interesting focus on the playwriting side of Christie s creativity and her enthusiasm for the theatre Green is nothing if not detailed and is strong both on getting facts right and not presuming things where there are no facts available However the book is overlong too much detail at times about financial dealings between the various agents and producers tend to make rather dull reading and I have to admit I skimmed such sections than once And scooting off down side paths to tell us about this or that actor and what they d done is interesting but sometimes seems like overkill And repeating himself in a number of places also seemed unnecessaryBut the plays themselves are given good coverage both those that were hits and those that were not The plays that were adapted by other authors from Christie s books don t impress Green at allThe book is perhaps intended to be for than just the Christie fan it s a coverage of historical documents and events and in that regard certainly succeeds And the Agatha Christie the woman comes across as a surprisingly endearing person though tough minded for all that Incidentally I notice that Goodreads suggests recommending this book to people who enjoy biography I think that s a mistake this isn t a biography though obviously there s a great deal about Christie It s a book about the theatre and playwriting
