AUTHOR

Childers, Erskine

SUMMARY

"Erskine Childers's 'The Riddle of the Sands' is often cited as the first modern spy novel. Whether or not that is true is perhaps debatable. However, since 1903 it has remained in print and has been a perennial favorite of readers....Given the directions the spy novel has taken over the past ninety years, 'The Riddle of the Sands' now probably will remind readers more of a Buchanesque adventure novel than an espionage thriller of derring-do....Still, as a precursor to le Carre and company, the novel remains of real interest because it helped to establish the conventions of the genre and stimulated a future interest in spy fiction.Childers, Erskine is the author of 'Riddle of the Sands A Record of Secret Service' with ISBN 9780486408798 and ISBN 0486408795.
