Albert Jack, the top-ten bestselling author of Red Herrings and White Elephants, now turns his attention to that other colourful element of everyday conversation we take for granted: urban legends.
Gathering together all the strangest, sickest, funniest and most unforgettable urban legends, Albert Jack recounts them with his usual deadpan humour. But this is far more than merely a book of urban legends. Like his previous books, it is also a detective story. Exploring the real events behind conspiracy theories, the exaggerations of history and the assumptions of old wives' tales (and self-help books amongst many, many other things), Albert Jack shows us that the truth can definitely be stranger than fiction.
Albert Jack's Red Herrings and White Elephants was a huge international hit and was on the bestseller list for six months. His next book Shaggy Dogs and Black Sheep is another success: selling over 70,000 copies since its October 05 publication and being serialised in the Sunday Telegraph for six months.
