Charlie Chan Carries On
Biografía del Autor
<p>Earl Derr Biggers (1884?1933) was an American novelist best known for his creation of the Chinese-American detective character Charlie Chan. Biggers was born in Warren, Ohio, and graduated from Harvard University in 1907. He embarked on a career in journalism initially but soon turned to writing novels. Biggers\' inspiration for Charlie Chan was drawn from the real-life Honolulu detective Chang Apana, and his aim was to craft a character that counteracted the negative Asian stereotypes prevalent in the early 20th century. \'Charlie Chan Carries On\' (1930) is one of the notable entries in the series, showcasing Biggers\' skill in blending wit and suspense in a unique mystery narrative. His literary style is marked by its humor, engaging plots, and the respectful presentation of Chan\'s character, challenging contemporary prejudices through the portrayal of a smart, ethical, and endearing hero. The success of the Charlie Chan series not only solidified Biggers\' reputation as a master of the mystery genre but also led to the character\'s adaptation into numerous films, further imprinting Chan onto the fabric of American popular culture. Despite the limited scope of his literary output due to his untimely death at the age of 49, Biggers\' work remains an important early example of American detective fiction and its evolution.</p>
