As the Crow Flies is an epic rags to riches tale from Jeffrey Archer, author of the bestselling The Clifton Chronicles. If your dream is big enough, not even your enemies can stop you . . . Charlie Trumper's earliest memory is of hearing his grandfather's sales patter from behind his costermonger's barrow. When Grandpa Charlie dies, young Charlie wants nothing more than to follow in his footsteps – his burning ambition is to own a shop that will sell everything: 'The Biggest Barrow in the World'. Charlie's progress from the teeming streets of Whitechapel to the elegance of Chelsea Terrace is only a few miles as the crow flies. But in Jeffrey Archer's expert hands it becomes an epic journey through the triumphs and disasters of the century, as Charlie follows a thread of love, ambition and revenge to fulfil the dream his grandfather inspired.

Technically, As the Crow Flies is supposed to be a direct path between two points. The direct route, despite its lackluster appeal, has an element of fun to it. What do you do when a street dog looks at you menacingly during your morning walk? What are the two words that would get you out of any difficult situation? What are the four words that will help you cope with any situation? Do you wonder if life is a journey or destination? What is your reaction when your kids ask a question for which you have no answer? How do you feel if you go without your favorite dish for a month? What is the essential vocabulary that you need to learn in a non-native language? This collection of articles will give you no answers but make you ask, ‘What would be my reaction in similar circumstances?' After reading this collection, you will be neither wealthier nor wiser. Nor will it transform you in twenty-four hours. However, the questions dormant in your mind will awaken, and you will become aware of and begin loving your inconsistencies. There are no perfect souls. Let us learn to love the incorrigible self!

“The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolor. Everyone had the same idea. Let’s get married. Let’s have kids. Let’s be the ones who do it right.” The Way the Crow Flies, the second novel by bestselling, award-winning author Ann-Marie MacDonald, is set on the Royal Canadian Air Force station of Centralia during the early sixties. It is a time of optimism--infused with the excitement of the space race but overshadowed by the menace of the Cold War--filtered through the rich imagination and quick humour of eight-year-old Madeleine McCarthy and the idealism of her father, Jack, a career officer. Ann-Marie MacDonald said in a discussion with Oprah Winfrey about her first book, “a happy ending is when someone can walk out of the rubble and tell the story.” Madeleine achieves her childhood dream of becoming a comedian, yet twenty years later she realises she cannot rest until she has renewed the quest for the truth, and confirmed how and why the child was murdered.. Publishers Weekly, in a starred review, called The Way the Crow Flies “absorbing, psychologically rich…a chronicle of innocence betrayed”. With compassion and intelligence, and an unerring eye for the absurd as well as the confusions of childhood, , MacDonald evokes the confusion of being human and the necessity of coming to terms with our imperfections.

Following in the footsteps of her successful BBC2 1998 series, Coast to Coast, As the Crow Flies describes Janet Street-Porter's attempt to walk the 350 miles from Edinburgh Observatory to Greenwich Observatory in a dead straight line. She discovers a new way of walking—the OS map isn't quite so handy when you can't stray off a line you've drawn on a map. What's more useful is a heavy clearing stick, the power of persuasion, and the patience of a saint. Janet adopts the old ramblers' cause of the "right to roam," discovering some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain—as well as bargaining and begging her way into secure properties, dodging Boeing 737s on take-off, and invading army bases and Saturday morning golf tournaments, all in the name of completing this mammoth walk strictly as the crow flies.
