A great little collection of short stories which Archer found the inspiration for while in prison.  Tales inclde that of a handsome premier division footballer falls in love with a 20-stone woman ... who just happens to be the ninth richest woman in Italy and the Italian restaurateur thrown into jail after being unable to explain his yacht, a Ferrari and a home in Florence, while only declaring a profit of £70,000 a year will delight those with a wicked sense of humour.

Cat O' Nine Tales Synopsis

Cat O’ Nine Tales is the sixth collection of irresistible short stories from the master storyteller illustrated by the internationally acclaimed artist, Ronald Searle, creator of Molesworth.


These twelve yarns are so satisfying because they are ingeniously plotted, include richly drawn characters and have deliciously unexpected conclusions. They feature the mad, the bad and the dangerous to know as well as some more poignant and telling characters. Many of these stories came to Archer while he was incarcerated for two years in five different prisons, and so they have a prison theme. Others were inspired since he was released, but all in all they confirm his position as one of the best storytellers alive today
