Exhaustively researched and elegantly written, Teller of Tales sets aside many myths and misconceptions to present a vivid portrait of the man behind the legend of Baker Street, with a particular emphasis on the Psychic Crusade that dominated his final years, the work that Conan Doyle himself felt to be "the most important thing in the world".
"A gripping sympathetic bio that proves that Doyle was anything but elementary." (Entertainment Weekly)
"An appealing and much-needed biography of the man who created one of literature's renowned eccentrics." (The Wall Street Journal)
