Great Classic Stories 2 by Martin Jarvis

Book Description

The 20 diverse stories collected here show why the short story continues to be one of the most popular of literary genres. Included are works by masters of the field, including one of F. Scott Fitzgerald's best Pat Hobby stories, "Boil Some WaterLots of It," Saki's "The Schartz-Metterklume Method," and "Jeff Peters as a Personal Magnet," O. Henry's hilarious tale of an incorrigible conman. Also included are gothic and ghost stories from Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, and M.R. James; tales of adventure from John Buchan and Sapper, best known for his Bulldog Drummond stories; comedic sketches from Jerome K. Jerome and Mark Twain, and other delightful works. Among the collection's gems are "Into the Sun," an early science fiction tale by the obscure but influential Robert Duncan Milne and E.F. Benson's chilling vampire story, "Mrs. Amworth." Memorable readings further enhance this fine anthology's many pleasures."

Written by Mrs Bach by Martin Jarvis Written by Mrs Bach, Paperback (May 2011)

It's not often that one of the world's greatest composers is accused of plagiarising his wife's work, but an Australian musical expert has cast doubt on whether Johann Sebastian Bach wrote all his own material. Conductor Martin Jarvis believes Bach's cello suites were composed by the German musician's second wife, Anna Magdalena Bach (1701-60).

In 2001, Martin Jarvis played the eponymous role in the American production of Alan Ayckbourn and Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical Wodehouse adaptation, "By Jeeves". This is the diary he kept of that tour; a study of triumphs, failures and mindbending chaos.
