Audibly Speaking: Listening to History
Coming Soon: “The Adventures of the Crooked Man”
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote “The Adventures of the Crooked Man” in 1892. It turned out to rank 15th on his list of 19 favorite short stories. My audio narration of the story will appear soon here on AudiblySpeaking. In this introduction, I analyze and critique the structure of the story and its qualities in terms of the expectations inherent in the mystery genre of storytelling.
