The great biography of an American horror master
returns to print
THE TELL-TALE HEART
The Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe
“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.
With a new afterword by Sarah Weinman, author of The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World.
