The doctor and the detective: a biography of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
"Arthur Conan Doyle was an enigma, but one all too often overshadowed by his own invention, Sherlock Holmes. In this comprehensive biography, Booth carefully balances his exposition of the Great Detective and his insightful account of the life of Conan Doyle. Though Holmes fans will want to glean fascinating tidbits that offer insight into their hero's creation, others will be captivated by the author's living embodiment of the Victorian ideal. In The Doctor and the Detective, Martin Booth pays grand tribute to the paradoxical and highly versatile man, creator of one of the most enduring literary figures of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
