  • Add Agatha Christie’s name to the growing list of authors whose works are being put under the close watch of “sensitivity readers” to pull any material deemed potentially offensive.

  • Among the edits noted by The Telegraph are a number of references to race – such as characters being described as Black or Jewish — as well as a passage where a character grows frustrated with children.
  • The word “native” was replaced with the word “local” and other terms like “Indian temper” were removed. Christie’s novels that were selected for editing were published between 1920 and 1976.
