The Short, the Long and the Tall
Short StoriesBook - 2020 | First U.S. edition
"Jeffrey Archer ... joins forces with renowned illustrator Paul Cox to re-imagine twenty of his most popular and fêted short stories alongside ... watercolor illustrations in The Short, The Long and the Tall. Find out what happens to the hapless young detective from Naples who travels to an Italian hillside town to solve a murder and ends up falling in love; and the pretentious schoolboy whose discovery of the origins of his father's wealth changes his life forever. Revel in the stories of the woman who dares to challenge the men at her Ivy League university during the 1930s, and another young woman who thumbs a lift and has an encounter she will never forget. Discover the haunting story about four men whose characters are tested to the point of death. Finally, a short parable about how pointless war is, and how decent people are caught up in the crossfire of their leaders' ambitions"-- Provided by publisher.
