I host a Dame Christie reading group; I -- and my group members -- would like to know how much Christie eventually made from her first novel "Mysterious Affair at Styles". We know it was rejected six times before it was picked up and we're curious about her return for the effort
Thank you for a quick reply (we meet again April 11)
