773, Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks

This is kind of an interesting glimpse into the great mystery writer's brainstorming process, but it can be kind of dry, and the editor/commentator really assumes that you have all her books memorized, which I don't (he also assumes you care about the hangups he has with some of Christie's plot holes. I don't). And there just isn't that much documentation for some of the most famous ones.

Still, there's nothing more reassuring to an aspiring writer than seeing how messy the creative process can be, even for people who know what they're doing and whose work has stood the test of time.
