9780001056534: The Grass Is Always Greener and Other Stories

The latest, and best, short story collection from the master storyteller. These -- all new -- stories show Jeffrey Archer's great skills with a wide variety of character, of subject and of setting, but all with that wonderful twist to the tail. Every reader will have their own favourites and the choices run from love at first sight across a crowded railway platform; a woman appearing to her lover at ten-year intervals; a man listening in on a conversation on a crossed line, which changes his whole life; a member of Her Majesty's Diplomatic Corps making use of his previously unsuspected financial acumen in a good cause; a Henry Moore statue disappearing and then reappearing in a different form; a study of seven men, each of whom believing he should have the job of the man immediately above him; a shipboard collision leading to a love affair which isn't what it seems and a South African, a long-standing believer in apartheid, having a change of heart. To Cut A Long Story Short is Jeffrey Archer's fourth story collection and shows him at absolutely top of his form. Wonderfully satisfying to listen to and fascinating to discover how many are based on true incidents that Jeffrey Archer has witnessed or heard.
