It was while she was married to Archie Christie that Agatha Christie, née Miller, wrote and published her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. That marriage lasted for less than fourteen years, ending in divorce at about the time of publication of her ninth book, The Mystery of the Blue Train, but her career as a writer of crime fiction continued for a further half-century and a further eighty-five titles (excluding the plays she also wrote). Having become known to a vast reading public as Agatha Christie, the author continued to use that name for professional purposes throughout the rest of her life, although privately she became Mrs Max Mallowan soon after her divorce from Christie.

Applebaum 'turns a blind eye to the failings of her own tribe. The measured, reasonable ... meritocratic elite she celebrates, maybe a wee bit smugly, must bear some responsibility for the populist backlash.'
