On Conan Doyle: Or, the Whole Art of Storytelling (Paperback)
A passionate lifelong fan of the Sherlock Holmes adventures, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Michael Dirda is a member of The Baker Street Irregulars--the most famous and romantic of all Sherlockian groups.

On Conan Doyle is a much-needed celebration of Arthur Conan Doyle's genius for every kind of storytelling.
