Alan Sillitoe's The Storyteller introduces us to Harry Lime, a London criminal who, in the early 1940s, is in his twilight years and looking back on his life. In flashbacks, we see Harry as a young man, in the days before he became a criminal, and as he navigates the difficult and often dangerous world of crime. Harry is a clever and resourceful thief, but he is also a sensitive and humane man, with a strong sense of morality. The Storyteller is a gripping and atmospheric story about the life of a criminal, and it is a perfect introduction to Alan Sillitoe's unique and influential writing style.; 8vo; 285 pages; Price? ? ?
