9780785835011: Creating Sherlock Holmes: The Remarkable Story of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Since Sherlock Holmes first appeared in the 1887 novel A Study in Scarlet, he has taken on a life of his own. But despite thousands of portrayals over the past one hundred years in books, on stage, in films and television, and most recently in video-game adaptations, what do we know about the great detective? Who was he and where did he come from?

Holmes remains an enigma, an unsolvable mystery—his original life contained in fifty-six short stories and four novels. His creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, was a celebrity figure during his own lifetime. Fans turned out in thousands around the world to catch a glimpse of the man who had invented one of the most memorable characters in popular culture.

This book chronicles the life and times of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes—the famous writer and his brilliant creation. In the process, Charlotte Montague reveals two great men whose lives are forever twisted together in history. One man is strikingly real and powerful, while the other is fictional, but destined to long outlive his creator.

About the Author:

Charlotte Montague is a freelance writer who specializes in history. Her father was a naval officer, and as a child, she travelled the world with her family. After gaining an M.A. degree in History from Sussex University, she began writing on a variety of subjects including ethnic cultures, travel, and music. Since then, she has continued to write on costumes, on flags, on knots, on body adornment, on sea shanties, and many other topics. More recently, she developed an interest in the history of crime at sea, not only in Europe but further afield. Her current research has taken her to many parts of the globe, including Africa and the Far East, particularly the islands of the South Pacific. She travels for most of the year, but returns frequently to her home, a remote eighteenth-century cottage close to a famous smuggler's cove on the Cornish coast.
