Agatha Christie's autobiography - in her own voice

I am sitting in my local public library catching up with online life. Here in Ohio, we had hurricane-force winds post-Ike, and millions like me are now on day three of no power. Thank heavens for internet access in the library!

When reading Monday's New York Times online, I came across an interesting story, "Tapes Offer New Clues to a Master of Mystery" by Julie Bosman, about a stockpile of audio tapes containing Agatha Christie's dictation of her life story. Christie's estate is pondering a re-release of the autobiography as an audiobook, allowing listeners to hear the long-past mannerisms of an English gentlewoman born 118 years ago. Talk about a time machine!
