A series of letters penned by legendary crime novelist Agatha Christie during a round-the-world trip is to be published for the first time.
The British writer headed off to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Hawaii with her husband Archie in 1922, and she kept in touch with her family - including daughter Rosalind - with a series of notes.
In the letters, she details her frequent bouts of seasickness, the couple's excursions ashore, and her observations of the behaviour of her fellow passengers.
Christie's missives will be published as part of a book, titled The Grand Tour, later this month (April12).
