Meet the Author

Earl Derr Biggers (1884-1933) was an American author, known primarily for his mystery and espionage novels. Biggers enjoyed early success as playwright, but his most famous character, Chinese-American detective Charlie Chan, did not debut until the final decade of Biggers' life. The six novels featuring Chan were tremendously successful. A number of Biggers' novels were adapted to film during and after his lifetime.

    The fun of reading an old mystery is that the period era is not decoration but real. Also they are written for that eras taste.

    Can you imagine a modern mystery depending on a hotel manual switchboard oil lamps and fireplaces in winter as normal? These are little histories. One read modrrn until someone complained the girl had too short skirts ........above her ankle.

    Not the best but harmless.

    Biggers made his mark as the author of the Charlie Chan mysteries, some of which hold up very well today. The title piece in this book, The Agony Column, is unfortunately pretty juvenile.
