The Tell-Tale Heart

Clear

Description

“As absorbing and compelling as a good detective story.”
– Washington Post

Sutherland House Classics is proud to bring back to print Julian Symons’ The Tell-Tale Heart, an acclaimed and best-selling biography of Edgar Allan Poe, one of the most influential authors in the English language.

A highly-regarded mystery and crime writer in his own right, Symons is in a unique position to understand Poe’s work and to sharply, thoroughly reveal the secrets of his life. He paints Poe as his contemporaries saw him: a man whose life was filled with tragedy and who struggled to make a living through his writing, only to emerge as a definitive voice in murder and-madness fiction and the inventor of the detective story.

More relevant than ever in our horror-obsessed times, The Tell-Tale Heart is the second volume in the Sutherland Classics series, which seeks to rediscover and reprint classic works of narrative non-fiction.

Author

One of Britain’s most acclaimed mystery writers, Julian Symons was the author of the award-winning novels The Colour of Murder and The Progress of a Crime. He also published works of biography, history, and literary criticism, including Bloody Murder: From the Detective Story to the Crime Novel, a celebrated study of mystery storytelling. He was a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America, and received the prestigious Diamond Dagger from the Crime Writers’ Association of Great Britain.
