Description
Leslie Klinger discusses his work on, “The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes.” He begins by explaining his work on annotating the works of author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. From there he goes on to discuss whether or not Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were real people or fictional characters. Klinger also gives the history and back-story of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the Sherlock Holmes tales. He goes on to explain how he became interested in the Sherlock Holmes stories given his background in law rather than English literature. Also in this interview, Klinger discusses the influence of the Sherlock Holmes series on other authors.
