|Arthur Conan Doyle|
|Pages/Publication Date:||251 / 2015|
Published at the end of his career, this anthology from Arthur Conan Doyle collects some of his best short fiction outside of the Sherlock Holmes canon. Here are escapades in Egypt, London, and the far-flung regions of northern Scotland—many of them stories of the medical profession from Conan Doyle's own experiences, and all rendered in his dazzling storytelling style. He portrays London surgeons and country doctors, both male and female, as they wrangle with professional and personal issues amid situations that are variously comic, tragic, and wildly improbable.
"Start a story by Conan Doyle and you cannot stop reading, whether you are 10 or 60."—Michael Dirda
