Gladys Mitchell Book and Novel

Gladys Mitchell - Author


Gladys Mitchell was an English schoolteacher and the author of over sixty novels featuring her unconventional heroine, Mrs Bradley. An early member of the Detection Club, alongside Agatha Christie, G.K Chesterton and Dorothy L. Sayers, she was awarded the Crime Writers Association Silver Dagger in 1976. Her hobbies included architecture and writing poetry. She studied the works of Sigmund Freud and her interest in witchcraft was encouraged by her friend, the detective novelist Helen Simpson.

Maxim Jakubowski's view on MRS BRADLEY...

Better known at the Home Office as Dame Beatrice Lestrange, and once played by Diana Rigg on TV, this clever and eccentric psychiatrist’s detecting career was featured over 50 years in 65 novels by Gladys Mitchell, many of which have recently been republished. Best begin with THE SALTMARSH MURDERS. Quirky, clever and cosy.
