Read full description of the books:
Pochi scrittori che si sono cimentati nel romanzo poliziesco hanno prodotto un classico al primo, e in questo caso anche ultimo, tentativo. Milne, celeberrimo creatore dell’orsetto Winnie-the-Pooh, è passato alla storia anche per questo giallo pubblicato nel 1922. Considerato dal critico Alexander Woollcott “uno dei tre migliori mystery di tutti i tempi”, è un esempio magistrale della detective story di scuola anglosassone di cui sfrutta alcuni temi caratteristici, non ultimo l’ambientazione nella sonnolenta ma tutt’altro che innocua campagna inglese. L’importanza di Milne risiede anche nell’avere inaugurato la serie di detective con un approccio “scanzonato” al crimine mediante il personaggio di Anthony Gillingham, investigatore dilettante faceto e bizzarro. Questi si trova coinvolto in uno strano caso allorché, durante una vacanza, decide di fare visita all’amico Bill, che è ospite di una grande villa, la Corte Rossa del titolo. Quando arriva, scopre che il fratello del padrone di casa, appena tornato da una lunga permanenza in Australia, giace sul pavimento dello studio con una pallottola in fronte. Poiché la polizia locale brancola nel buio, l’indagine viene presa in mano da Gillingham e da Bill, che funge da “Watson”. La tortuosità dell’intreccio, il suo charme d'altri tempi, il suo essere, in ultima analisi, un capolavoro di artificio ne fanno un’opera, come la definì Rex Stout, “semplicemente incantevole”.

Read information about the authorAlan Alexander Milne (pronounced /ˈmɪln/) was an English author, best known for his books about the teddy bear Winnie-the-Pooh and for various children's poems.
A. A. Milne was born in Kilburn, London, to parents Vince Milne and Sarah Marie Milne (née Heginbotham) and grew up at Henley House School, 6/7 Mortimer Road (now Crescent), Kilburn, a small public school run by his father. One of his teachers was H. G. Wells who taught there in 1889–90. Milne attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. While there, he edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine. He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's work came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later an assistant editor.
Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and later, after a debilitating illness, the Royal Corps of Signals. He was discharged on February 14, 1919.
After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour. During World War II, Milne was one of the most prominent critics of English writer P. G. Wodehouse, who was captured at his country home in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse made radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the light-hearted broadcasts made fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge on his former friend by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in some of his later stories, and claiming that Milne "was probably jealous of all other writers.... But I loved his stuff."
He married Dorothy "Daphne" de Sélincourt in 1913, and their only son, Christopher Robin Milne, was born in 1920. In 1925, A. A. Milne bought a country home, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex. During World War II, A. A. Milne was Captain of the Home Guard in Hartfield & Forest Row, insisting on being plain 'Mr. Milne' to the members of his platoon. He retired to the farm after a stroke and brain surgery in 1952 left him an invalid and by August 1953 "he seemed very old and disenchanted".
He was 74 years old when he passed away in 1956.
