Hello, I'm scared of... crime books!

"I think. That's one of the kind of joys and the drawbacks of crime is zone and it's one of the things that annoys me when people always read pieces in the newspapers whereas it's someone making sweeping generalizations about crime this crime that and actually crime is a huge on. R- it's as big as you know it's like saying fiction is this like of course then some parts of fiction it is but crime spans the gamut from really intensely literary right through to kind of pure page-turners an really like terrifying stuff. That is way too hot for me. I'm quite a REC- readers. I chose reader. Yeah yeah that makes for better things stops me is that I'm like kind of scattered Dr. I'm an ex Christian but for some reason I still it kind of affects like how much I really believe in ghosts which is more people and let me say that your Senate Sky Dateline kind of chills and speak. He stuff like there's quite a lot of playing about with that in my books but what I really don't. I cannot read books that are kind of sold. Like people locked in basements or sexual torture or particularly stuff happening to kids. That's just like my my line You know no shade on people who write that. It's we need to explore all areas of human experience in fiction. And that's fine but it's not what I want to spend my evenings immersing myself in you know when you're not familiar with the genre as you say. Sometimes the jackets can similar when they kind of wildly different types of six and it is a bit of a learning curve. I think finding out sort of which bit because I I also have had this stuff about crime fiction through the ages where it's like often this get letting the thing that is scary in the book as a society. We're a little bit afraid of and that can make change throughout the decades but then it also means that on a personal level of the stuff that you're like I'm quite interested in exploring fair and then other stuff that is enjoyable to explore the new stuff. That's definitely I mean. The classic thing that is always talked about is the fact that the golden age of crime was in between the wars and Agatha Christie was writing all the way through the Second World War and wrote some of her best names route. Twelve books I think during the second mobile without stopping sometimes two books a year and people who wanted to read about this and even in the midst of kind of death and bereavement and destruction and bombs and huge uncertainty. They wanted crime and it becomes. Yeah they sort of. Are they exploring phase safely They wanted to live in a world where the impossible is solved. May Right and where bodies brought to justice. I don't know if there was easy. Onces like I would publish a thesis on it and become a PhD. If it's the same with you but like I say. I think that there's probably a lot misconceptions around crime and just named one of the crime writers that I know apart from nightmare modern switched our Agatha Christie and then shallow stuff like that's the only kind of two touch points a puffer Moton wrenches. The I know like what do you come up against misconceptions at variety forgot anymore misconceptions That you have but like do you come up against those things in the book and what which ones are true and which ones are like. Not Surgery are accurate. I think one thing I sometimes maybe misconception. On the hair is that they. They're not always believable and things. Sometimes people read to escape. Some people read to understand that life or the situational things going on in the world a little bit more and I think there are a lot. I know that there are a lot like that. I think that's not necessarily something I believe. I think that sometimes a bit of misconception that it sort of by so many things can happen to someone in the morning but life I watched enough kind of true crime dramas tonight actually extraordinary things do happen to people. That's why I might see rates because I've always struggled with that exact question of I don't want to write a procedural. I don't want to write about police officer because I don't inhabit that world and it's not my area of expertise and you do run up against the question of realistically. How many bodies can an ordinary person stumble? We're not Jessica Fletcher. We don't like Pandora in Cabot Cove and have a corpse waiting there every single day. So you know something that crime writers struggle with as well but I do. I firmly believe that it is completely possible. Implausible for one terrible unlikely incident to strike people in a lifetime. I think we've all been the victims of those and we know people who've had terrible extraordinary things happen to them so I don't think in itself that's but yet when it happens again and again and again. This is an interesting one because you can say that any genre like pick Saad poetry. And how sad can Waldman really be like you know like a little life is like? That's brutal like I think. We can fly that to to cry when actually we can say that about a lot of German. You're always going to be talking about the extraordinary end of ordinary. Even when you know even when it's just a regular life you're writing about it. In some kind of heightened artificial way. No one writes about life as it really happens because it would be incredibly tedious and full of sequiturs either. That's not how fiction works. We accept that it's a kind of construct but yes how far you'll cater for peds to to follow that construct but do you so. Do you read climate. All right if you read stuff and enjoyed it or you just never really got to grips with that. As as you know I have and I remember when I was younger. My Dad my dad is a big kind of threat breeze all the big American crime office and I remember the get that again. It's I remember picking up because I was on holiday and I ran. We ran out two books and I picked up a Ro Robert Ludlum book and I absolutely loved and for years it was the Sigma Protocol and it was one of my favorite books because it had this kind of I was so gripped by the narrative but also had this kind of the end of real big moral question kind of about ethics and I just found really fascinating but then I didn't pick up another one. So it's it's. It's a bit strange so I don't really know why because the ones I have read. I have enjoyed that. I think I also haven't I work in publishing and a low of my reading is dictated by what I work on. Haven't actually worked with any modern crime. Rights is so I don't know yeah. It's not that I haven't enjoyed them. I just think it's interesting like what we bookshop. What we go towards. Because it's what we see ourselves. I'm like I didn't really see myself as a crime rate even though I've read crime is that thing of like what settles in your head and doesn't right if you were going to pick up the next crime book. Let's find one for eight. What would you be looking for in a crime free Even the book. Yeah gives you elements and we'll diagnose. Okay will somewhere with a real sense of place that I can kind of stand on this because we're not going anywhere right now that we need some vivid sensitive travel escape my falls something historical but maybe more kind of twentieth century historical and something. I do think that raises questions. It makes you think differently about something so I kind of like moral ambiguity in well. I have three suggestions for you. If people are sort of struggling to find their way into genre I sometimes think it's helpful to have sort of stepping stone books. That kind of are not necessarily crime but crime adjacent and a book which I firmly believe is part of the psychological thriller Genre and I would probably be one of the best but isn't usually shoved as that regard it is that is Rebecca by definitely Maury Which I think has the amazing sense of place that you're after Obviously it also literary classics. So it's just a really good book to have read if what is adjusted in literary fiction because it's the touchstone for a lot of kind of literary fiction as well as a lot of crime fiction Another book which again is kind of Paul of the Classic Crime Cannon and I think has the kind of moral questioning and ambiguity. That may be talking about Would be the time. Mister Ripley by Patricia Highsmith She is just wonderful writer full stop. She writes very sparsely. She's amazing at creating character. She plunged irritate and it is a crime novel. You're kind of trying to figure out what's happening whether Ripley's GonNa get caught. But she sort of puts you on the opposite side most crime because you're in Ripley skin and you're rooting for him. Even as he's doing terrible terrible things but you also kind of at the same time want justice to catch up with him but in terms of Morton book which I think takes away your boxes including the historical one. I would highly recommend Alabama cheese Series which is set in the Indian raw and has to fantastic Cactus at the center of it. There's some who's an English man who's been kind of Dropped into colonial India in sort of Typically kind of bossing the locals around and then as he's kind of second in command and sidekicks the not who's an Indian And it's just it's brilliantly done and it tackles some really big questions alongside each time. A really cracking mystery in terms of you. WanNa find out whodunit. You WanNa you the detectives to solve it. You want everyone to be bang to rights but he's really grappling with big twentieth century. Questions that estill dogging us today in terms of the fact that we don't have solutions. These are still things the Iraqi going in the news today. I'm they're just cracking a good races

"When Josh Chuck we're big racists at the beginning you know it's true but just wait for twenty years from now there'll be like I can't believe we talk. Those guys were ages bastards. You know probably so. There's one other thing I want to say too. So when she lived through World War Two Agatha Christie was worried that she's going to die in the bombing blitz of Great Britain and she really wanted Hercule Poirot and Jay Marples to have a final case. So she wrote a book for each of them One is called curtain. That's poor rose from final book and the other is sleeping murder That is marples final case and In it just kind of explains what happened. My belief poor road dies. Marples just retires but when she survived World War Two. She was like well. I don't I'm not ready for these guys to be retired yet. So she kept those books and had them posthumously published and they were in the seventies and when her Hercule Poirot rose last book came out and he died The New York Times ran a front page obituary for him. The only fictional character to have that honor bestowed on them. That's crazy isn't it? Yeah and also very cool good idea to write those books early on just in case because you never know yeah besides the bombing thing. I mean she could. She could walk off a ledge or get hit by a bus or die of natural causes early. Like you never know. And then you've got this legacy cemented right pretty smart. Have you ever seen one last thing? Have you ever seen murder by death? I know I've asked you before I have that DVD sitting on my desk. Well that's amazing that you have that on your desk and you wait. Is it on your desk at work place. I was GONNA say watch tonight. But don't watch it tonight. wait until everything clears no. It's a spoof actually detective books of like Charlie chained in Agatha Christie and Sam Spade and all that that she helped you know Kinda create but it's actually like a complaint from fans of mystery mysteries it's wonderful book trimming movie Truman. Capote's in it David Niven Peter Peter Falk A lot of people James Cromwell as a younger man. James Coco is Hercule Poirot. It's his great. You'RE GONNA love him so I guess we should say that she did. I eventually Five years or three years after I met her in nineteen seventy six at the age of eighty five at her home in Oxfordshire Oxfordshire and it was natural causes. Not Poison know her. Last words were good to meet you. Chuck anything else. I do not have anything else. Well friends that is Agatha Christie. If you I know more about the Christie Start Reading Agatha Christie Books Agatha Christie like three or four times. It's time for listener main part.

"She really catapulted later on because she moved some of these more exotic locales but one of the things that cemented her legend as a mystery writer in addition to all of the workshop did in addition to a prolific nece and her extreme talent at this formula that she had worked out was Would still today is considered an unsolved mystery? In fact there was featured on a nineteen ninety-four episode of unsolved mysteries Which I just randomly happened to see recently and She disappeared. There's a whole sub plot tag at the Christie's life that was really surprising especially compared to how boring and normal and just kind of plotting with these instead of tease. Her normal life was the fact that she has this grand mystery. Plunk down in the middle of it is is pretty impressive. Yeah it's it's Here's the here's the back story She and Archie were not meant to be together as it turns out revealed that he was having an affair With a lady named Nancy Neal was a friend of the family and obviously that was the end of their marriage. So at the end of nineteen twenty. Six They decided they were going to take a trip together. A weekend or Archie went to be with his friends instead. And then she vanished into seemingly thin air They found her car near rock quarry with her coat and her driver's license. Their and no- Agatha Christie. No in her car wasn't just near the rock quarry according to some reports like one of the wheels hanging over the edge of this cliff and still spinning right So but she was gone she. They couldn't find her. And so within a couple of days this massive search depending on who you ask in depending on when you ask them ten like ten thousand plus people were searching for probably more likely couple thousand which is still really remarkable for this tiny little area in the southwest of England At the time in one thousand nine hundred eighty six So that really kind of demonstrates she was already a well known writer. She wasn't legendary yet. But this is disappearances the mechanism by which she becomes legendary. I think and this goes on for a good week. I believe right. When did she disappear? December what I think December third is when they were going to take that trip so she was going almost two weeks in a bygone? We mean just vanished. She left behind that car. She left behind the driver's license for like you said she was gone. Her husband had come came to be known to have asked for divorce already so people were like well did he bumper off and she's a mystery writer known for generating stuff like this so even at the time. Some people were like. Is this a publicity stunt. Because it's a pretty good one if it is sure it worked In those a band at this place called the Swan Hydropower Ethic Hotel in Yorkshire which Kind of just sounds like a bit of a Kellogg brothers type of joint. Have you seen a cure for wellness? Well we we talked about that in that podcast did we. I can't remember if you've seen it. I'd never saw it have you yet. I still have not seen it. Hey Miss that much but it is pretty interesting. It's quits worth seeing at least once. I might check it out but any rate they had a band here because what Hydro Pathak. Hotel does not have a house band and they came forward and said hey that's Agatha Christie lady. She's been staying here for a week. She's been in the Electric Light. Bath Cabinet and getting a yogurt animas and having a grand old time so they went to the cops and the cops went to the lead detective and said no no. No she's been murdered and we're trying to find out the killer. I'm sure of it eventually. This detective said well let me tell her husband and husband. Archie went out to check it out on the fourteenth of December. There she was. She was in seclusion and That was sort of the end of this mystery. It wasn't so much a mystery You know she by all accounts seemed like she went there because she had thought about or maybe tried to drive her car into that quarry in and kill herself because she was upset about her marriage. Ending Yeah And then it didn't happen and she just kind of goes on a walkin ends up at this place may or may not have invented an Asia story or may have actually happened to some degree. She didn't talk about a lot so we don't really know exactly what went down with the Amnesia. She said that so two years later she gave an interview with the Daily Mail. Apparently explained the Amnesia by saying she hit her head on the steering wheel but in the same interview. She says that she'd let go of the steering wheel so she basically said like I attempted suicide and it didn't work out a hit my head on the steering wheel and I wandered off and I had Amnesia but the the they think that it's just a family cover story to save face the same. Nesia story and that really. She had attempted to take her life and Hadn't succeeded in now regretted it And was embarrassed by all of this because the idea that there were thousands of people looking for I think it probably never crossed her mind when she wandered away from her car. Now and that remember she was very shy person so this all this attention was very very hard honor so the the family just came up with this cover story that she had amnesia. So don't even bother asking and Archie and she stayed together for another year or so and then their divorce finally became finalized in nineteen twenty eight. Yes so she didn't even mention this in her autobiography. Which Kinda says all you need to know about how much she liked to talk about. This right We should say there was one other thing that did this to. It wasn't just Artie asking for a divorce. He asked for a divorce a few months after her. Mother died and Agatha Christie's mother was beloved to her. She worshiped her mother. She thought she was wonderful. Her mother was the parent that was there for her while she was a kid and raised her It was just a very interesting person. It sounds like Sushi died. Archie asks for a divorce a few months later and then this whole mysterious disappearance happened. That's right and then one last thing. I read the at the Swan Hydro Hotel. She was actually playing cards and chatting with other guests about this mysterious disappearance that was in all of the newspapers and none of the other guests recognized her. It was those band members that you mentioned interesting. I thought so too man. So that's everything. I learned from unsolved mysteries. Should we take a break? Finally all right let's Let's take our final break and we'll talk a little bit more about her later. Life and further success..

"I confused that with Snow Piercer. I think I've seen both but I can't remember which one's which they're kind of very similar but Bussan IS ZOMBIES ON. A train Korean film. No then I think I'd just seen snow piercer. You should check out trying to Basan it if you think you've seen it all with Zombie Genre. Then think again do that saying something. Because that's that John Ras gotten a little Tired Day Oh hey let me ask you this have you seen. I know you've seen you had to have ozark. Oh sure I'm just started it. Yeah I'm a couple of episodes into the latest season. Okay Yeah you mean. I started at season one. And I'm like all I WANNA do is sit around and watch ozark. It's amazing Yeah I love it. That's like Hartwell you know. Oh no I didn't know that. Yeah Smart I've tried to get Bateman and Laura Linney on movie crush. It's always thank you know. Oh Yeah Yeah. Hey you're getting responses. That's that's a big step forward. It's nice to be told now and just not a yard. Yeah right all right. So you've got your setting With Agatha Christie. She did include her travels in some of her later novels when they became like Super Popular. But it was still not like a globe-trotting like James Bond kind of thing. No that's that's the point. So like in a espionage thriller. Something locales are all over the place and you know the characters constantly moving In these cozy thrillers. Like even if they're in an exotic locale They're still set in a small part of that exotic locale. That's right you got your suspects. They are Questioned by detective. They usually all have a motive. They usually all have the means. Because everyone you know in a great novel like this everyone's gotta be a suspect from the beginning and then you can kinda quickly whittle or slowly whittled that list down right. And here's the thing what I was saying with the With the the kind of mystery that Agatha Christie wrote and really established you are part of the mystery like. You're either the Investigator the detective has an assistant that they explain things to very much like Sherlock Holmes and Watson sure or if the detective is working solo say like Miss Marple Miss Marples might write a list of suspects and their motives and little clues down as part of the narration. And your your lead in every step of the way so. You're hard of this working toward solving the mystery. And has it's very frequently put it kind of puts you in a competition with author to see if you can figure out who who done it before the end of the book. Yeah I mean that. Goes BACK TO ENCYCLOPEDIA Brown. The whole point is to try and figure that stuff out man. I love those. Those are so great encyclopedia Brown. I remember he busted one dumb kid who did something bad. I can't remember The bugs meany. Oh man good memory. It may have been bugs. Meany was he kind of a big dumb. Oh food like beat up on chipmunks I think so okay. He busted bugs once because bugs had tears coming out of the the outside corners of his eyes freakazoids rather than inside corners. That's good but see the great thing about those books is at a twelve year old. Doesn't really necessarily always pick up on those clues. Oh I did. I was at that grade. I'd be curious to see if they would stop me now. No I mean specifically with the outside of the eye thing but yeah no. I'm sure there are plenty that I missed but she cried when you were boy. I knew staring in the mirror and so then the end to wrap up the little genre sort of summary. You've got this great ending usually where everyone's gathered together and the detective kind of walks. Everyone through the big reveal of exactly. How the killer did it right And in her case she did not Like when the killer is revealed they didn't turn around and shoot them in the face like it's usually pretty non violent. They would be wrestled to the ground or arrested or maybe they might run away and you hear later that they had killed themselves or something like that sure. There was rarely a grand finale where they would be pressed to death in front of a crowd who needs it so that I mean that's it like Bing Bang boom. That was when you started on page one of Agatha Christie novel. You knew exactly how everything was going to play out. And then one of the other things is because the sing with so formulaic. There was also room for this for the author to kind of play with you. The reader In in using things like bluffs in red herring out sure think are basically the same thing but the idea is that so the author in this case. Agatha Christie would say something like You know early on in the book a suspect would come running out of the house looking shaken and Pale and You the reader would be like well. That's just way too obvious. She's not going to name. She's not going to point out who the murderer is at. The beginning of the book can disregard that person or this very obvious clue or something like that. Those kind of part of the interplay between author and reader but then it could go even deeper to where she would say something like well. I know that you think that this is too obvious. I'm GONNA actually make this the actual murderer which she did in some cases which was like a double bluff apparently could just keep going on and on and on but it was this kind of Wrestling match or maybe slap fight between Agatha Christie and you her reader which made the whole thing all the more delight that's right and she takes great pains to point out that she did not invent this genre There were people like Arthur Conan. Doyle obviously po before her that sort of establish some of these rules but she was very popular. She's very good at what she did She wrote about what she knew. And we'll we'll talk about her life coming up in a little bit but these manor houses in these estates and these English villages and even the exotic locales And these train trips and things were things that she actually experienced and you know a lot of people are great at making stuff up. A lot of people are great about writing what they know and it seems like. She was really great at writing what she knew. Yeah and I for some reason either. It was the time or maybe because of her. I'm not sure it was kind of a chicken or the egg thing but she happened to write about stuff that a lot of people wanted to read about these small you know English villages and you know quaint mannerisms of the upper middle and upper class English society Set in this period of time that in for some reason to just captured everybody's attention and apparently when she started expanding I think after World War Two To some slightly more exotic locales like Egypt or Mesopotamia. You know For like a death on the Nile was very famous when during this time or the Orient Express That really catapulted her into superstardom international superstardom. Too Yeah I don't have a super firm read on the history of literature but I get the idea that this is sort of aligned with the beginnings of poplar it And like I call it. The beach book I don't know if there had been a ton of stuff like this. That was just sort of pure comfort food and entertainment up to this point. Yeah I'm not sure either. I know nothing that I'm familiar with. I can say but there were very entertaining books. They were humorous. A very dark sense of humor. Great Dialogue All these Verbal joust between the detectives and the suspects is really key to Genera. Something Nice out did really really well. That was one of my favorite scripts the year. Maybe my favorite script. Wow but Just really really good sharp writing and it's no Sort of no accident that she became so hugely popular. No and that's something like if you're not really familiar with Agatha Christie and you just Kinda look up in passing one of the things you'll be confronted with. Is that a lot of people. A lot of critics say she was a hack and When what they're talking about is that formula that she followed to almost like a a soul ously rational degree like that was the formula. That's what she followed But that really misses like the fact that she had a really great eye for detail in the dialogue like you were saying she was a good writer and she could just crank workout. I think during the decade of the Twenty S. She wrote a book a year. A might have even become more prolific later on in the thirties and forties to yet and she She was a business person. You know Mike. There's nothing wrong with saying. Wow people love this stuff and they sell a lot and Although it took a while for that to happen as we'll see but there's there's nothing wrong with any of that. I think people that call our hack can fly. Yeah go fly with extreme prejudice. Should we take a break? I think so man will come back and talk about her life. Great.
