Jeffrey Archer

Né en Angleterre en 1940, sir Jeffrey Archer fait ses études à l'université d'Oxford avant d'embrasser la carrière politique. En 1969, il est élu à la Chambre des Communes, dont il devient l'un des plus jeunes membres de toute l'Histoire. Il en démissionne en 1974, ruiné et endetté, et décide de faire fortune grâce à sa plume. Pari gagné ! Inspiré de son expérience d'actionnaire floué, son premier livre La Main dans le sac, rencontre un succès immédiat aux États-Unis, et se vend à plusieurs millions d'exemplaires dans le monde. Il sera suivi de bien d'autres best-sellers tels que Seul contre tous, Le Sentier de la gloire ou encore Kane et Abel.
