                                    致敬世界著名的侦探小说家——阿加莎克里斯蒂


Agatha Christie (15 Sep. 1890~12 Jan. 1976) was a British crime writer of novels, short stories and plays. She is best remembered for the 66 detective novels and numerous short story collections, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirit, Miss Jane Marple and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world’s longest-running play The Mousetrap.

阿加莎克里斯蒂(1890.9.15—1976.1.12),英国侦探犯罪小说家和剧作家。她的作品中,66篇侦探小说和数量巨大的短篇小说最被人所称道,这些作品中主要围绕着波罗、马普尔小姐、汤米和塔珀斯的调查展开。她还创作了至今历史上上映时间最长的话剧——捕鼠器。


Born to a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon, Christie served in a hospital during the First World War. Although initially unsuccessful at getting her work published, in 1920, The Bodley Head press published her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring the character of Poirot. This launched her literary career.

出生在德文郡的脱基市的富裕的中等阶层家庭的克里斯蒂,在一战时期到医院做志愿服务。虽然最初的创作并不成功,但是在1920年发表的《斯托尔泰庄园奇案》,创造了极富个性的人物波罗,这也使她的文学事业开始顺风顺水。


According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Christie is the best-selling novelist if all time. Her novels have sold roughly 4 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works rank the third, after those of William Shakespeare and the Bible, as the world’s most widely published books. According to Index Translationum, Christie is the most translated individual author, and her books have been translated into at least 103 languages. And Then There Were None is Chritie’s best-selling novel with 100 million sales to date, making it the world’s best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time. In 1971, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. 

根据吉尼斯世界记录,克里斯蒂是世界范围内的畅销书作家。她的小说已经卖出大约40亿册,而且她的作品销量上在世界上排名第三,仅次于莎士比亚和《圣经》,同时她还是书籍出版范围最广的作家。根据《翻译索引》,克里斯蒂在翻译史上是一个非凡的作家,她的作品被翻译成至少103种语言。《无人生还》是克里斯蒂最畅销的一部作品,据统计已经售出一亿册,这创造了十几出版史上的一个奇迹,这也是历史上销售成绩最好的书籍之一。1971年,在白金汉宫她被伊丽莎白女王二世授予女爵士头衔。
