Tales of Adventurers

Geoffrey Household

Write Review

Rated 0

Fiction, Crime & mystery, Short stories

Thirteen short stories from the original master of the spy-thriller.

It was by this 1952 collection of short stories that Geoffrey Household wished his literary skill to be judged. And it is clear why. In a captivating assortment of tales from spy thrillers to historical fables, the reader is taken on a journey from the Mediterranean Sea on the eve of the First World War through the freezing valleys of Albanian to the ironic, personal landscape of a female spy preoccupied with marriage. With wit, suspense and political intrigue, Tales of Adventurers stands with Household's best.

Including, among others, The Cook Runner, The Picket Lines of Marton Hevessy, The Hut, Woman in Love and Railroad Harvest.
