The Truth About Archie and Pye

The Truth About Archie and Pye

Author: Jonathan Pinnock Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/10/2018

Something doesn't add up about Archie and Pye ... After a disastrous day at work, disillusioned junior PR executive Tom Winscombe finds himself sharing a train carriage and a dodgy Merlot with George Burgess, biographer of the Vavasor twins, mathematicians Archimedes and Pythagoras, who both died in curious circumstances a decade ago. Burgess himself will die tonight in an equally odd manner, leaving Tom with a locked case and a lot of unanswered questions. Join Tom and a cast of disreputable and downright dangerous characters in this witty thriller set in a murky world of murder, mystery and complex equations, involving internet conspiracy theorists, hedge fund managers, the Belarusian mafia and a cat called . Praise for Jonathan Pinnock: 'Lovely stuff.' Ian Rankin 'He makes funny and self-deprecating company.' The Herald 'Jonathan Pinnock writes compelling tales with a deliciously wicked glint in his eye.' Ian Skillicorn, National Short Story Week 'Jonathan Pinnock is Roald Dahl's natural successor.' Vanessa Gebbie Funny, clever, and sometimes brilliantly daft. A comedy that I am sure would have made Pythagoras, Archimedes and Douglas Adams all laugh out loud.

Dot, Dash

Author: Jonathan Pinnock Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 05/11/2012

Prepare to enter a world where nothing is ever quite what it seems, where elephants squat in living rooms, plastic ducks fall from the skies and even the rabbits can't be trusted. The fifty-eight stories in Jonathan Pinnock's Scott Prize-winning collection Dot Dash show a vivid yet disciplined imagination at work. These stories, many of which have individually won prizes, are populated by a rich variety of characters, including a tightrope-walking couple with marital issues, a graffiti artist with an agenda and an interviewee who's about to find out some awkward truths about himself. Very few of them turn out to be completely innocent, and none of them remains unaffected by the experience. Jonathan Pinnock's unashamedly entertaining fictions explore what happens when the macabre and the absurd crash headlong into everyday life. As writer Tania Hershman says, he `isn't content to just pull back the curtain, but sets fire to it and chuckles as it blazes'. With this incendiary first collection, he invites readers to pull up a chair and watch the flames rise.
