With nearly 200 illustrations, this Companion will let you in on the world of Holmes and the loyal, ever-dignified, Dr. Watson; the London of their day; the great players who have made the part of Sherlock Holmes the role (for better or worse) of a lifetime; and much more. For the more serious reader, this volume is a new verse of an old and cherished love song. It offers a postmodern analysis of Watson's complex relationship with the great detective and contends that Holmes, typically perceived as a humorless, self-denying ascetic, is actually quite the bon vivant. With many lesser-known facts, unexpected insights, and fresh observations. The Bedside, Bathtub & Armchair Companion to Sherlock Holmes is perfect for reading or browsing, the book for all visitors to 221B Baker Street.
