Description

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is one of the most written about men who ever lived but despite this some parts of his life get little attention. One such period is between 1891 and 1894 when he lived in South Norwood in present day south east London. During this period he wrote and published much of his best work including the first two series of Sherlock Holmes short stories. This book looks at his life during this period and, in contrast to other biographies, spends time looking at some of his input into local Norwood life.

Our customer reviews

There are Sherlock Holmes fans and the more serious ones, like me, become fans of Conan Doyle and his wider work. This book neatly covers the 'missing years' in Norwood with such depth and attention to detail you can't help but admire Duncan's commitment to his idol. Regular Holmes fans will like it, Doyleans will love it.show more
