Seeds of Greatness by Jon Canter

Book Description

Two friends grow up in a North London Jewish suburb. David is bright, parent-pleasing and obviously destined for great things. But somehow he ends up earning peanuts in a Suffolk bookshop while his devious and wayward friend Jack, becomes rich and famous as a TV chat-show host. When Jack dies, his widow and publisher commission David to write his biography; after all, dependable David can be relied upon not to dish the dirt about the sex, the drugs and the women. David however soon realises that it's finally time he stopped doing what is expected of him. Instead he must write the true story of the forty year friendship that has dominated his life and then maybe he'll get Jack out of his system. But what David soon finds is that he can never be completely free of Jack...

Books By Author Jon Canter

Afterliff by Jon Canter Afterliff, Hardback (August 2013)

A liff is a familiar object or experience that English has no word for. This book corrects this disgraceful oversight by recycling the names found on signposts. It features over 900 essential new definitions.

Worth by Jon Canter Worth, Paperback (August 2012)

For Richard and Sarah, leaving the rat-race of London for the sleepy village of Worth feels like a dream come true. But their new life isn't quite as idyllic as it first seems. The cottage is tiny and the neighbours are excruciating. Soon they find themselves reverse-commuting back to London on the weekends, just to be with people they like.

Short Gentleman by Jon Canter Short Gentleman, Paperback (March 2009)

An intellectual giant but an emotional pygmy, Robert Purcell is a man struggling to come to terms with the forces that have brought him down, from the wife who wanted him to change, to the ex-girlfriend who came back to haunt him and the childhood bully who turned into an adult bully.
