ADVERTISEMENTS



Christie herself said very little about the disappearance. She rarely discussed the matter in interviews and the bizarre episode does not appear in her autobiography. In the days after her return, the author blamed her vanishing on a mysterious dream state, in which she took on an entirely new identity:

“For 24 hours I wandered in a dream, and then found myself in Harrogate as a well-contented and perfectly happy woman who believed she had just come from South Africa.”
