This month we’re discussing The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. This riveting tale of mistaken identities, surprise revelations, locked rooms, and an unorthodox villain by the “godfather of detective fiction” has enthralled readers since first published over 160 years ago. In 1859 Charles Dickens, contemporary and good friend of Collins, published The Woman in White serially in his literary magazine, All the Year Round. It is considered one of earliest examples of the mystery genre and the first “sensation” novel. It also called attention to the rights of married women.
WhoDunnits is a discussion group devoted to mysteries that follows a yearlong program of books and movies around a single topic. This year it’s Sherlock Holmes’ big brothers — who were the authors who created the detective genre before Conan Doyle came along?
