THE LEGACY OF SHERLOCK HOLMES
Since his first appearance in 1887, Sherlock Holmes has become arguably the most enduring fictional character of the past two centuries. Why? What about Arthur Conan Doyle’s creation caused him to outlast his peers in the popular imagination, and to define an entire genre of detective fiction? In what ways was Sherlock Holmes both a perfectly emblematic creature of the Victorian age — and yet a timeless one as well?
Graham Moore is a New York Times bestselling novelist and Academy Award©-winning screenwriter. His screenplay for The Imitation Game won the Academy Award© and WGA Award for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2015 and was nominated for a BAFTA and a Golden Globe. The film, directed by Morten Tyldum and starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, received 8 Academy Award© nominations, including Best Picture.
Moore’s first novel, The Sherlockian (2010), was published in 16 countries and translated into 13 languages. It was called “sublime” and “clever” and “delightful” by the New York Times, “savvy” and “entertaining” by the Los Angeles Times. Moore’s second novel, The Last Days Of Night, was published in August 2016 by Random House and described as “a fascinating portrait of American inventors” by Entertainment Weekly and “a model of superior historical fiction” as well as a “brilliant journey into the past” by the Washington Post.
