“I have had a life which, for variety and romance, could, I think, hardly be exceeded. I have known what it was to be a poor man and I have known what it was to be fairly affluent. I have sampled every kind of human experience. I have known many of the most remarkable men of my time. I have had a long literary career after a medical training which gave me the MD of Edinburgh…I have traveled as Doctor to a whaler for seven months in the Arctic and afterwards in the West Coast of Africa. I have seen something of three wars: the Sudanese, the South African and the German. My life has been dotted with adventures of all kinds. Finally, I have been constrained to devote my latter years to telling the world the final result of thirty-six years’ study of the occult…Such is the life which I have told in some detail in my Memories and Adventures.”—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Quotes & Awards

  • “The charming memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’s creator show that he did much more than write detective stories.”


  • “You would think that writing the complete works of Sherlock Holmes would be the accomplishment of a lifetime. Think again. In this autobiography, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle describes an incredibly adventuresome and full life, of which the authorship of his famous stories was only a small part…[Vance] offers a smooth and professional reading of this exciting book.”
