Daniel Defoe is most well-known for his classic novels Robinson Crusoe and Moll Flanders. Born circa 1659, he was also a journalist, a pamphleteer, a businessman, a spy … and a writer of short stories. His life was long and colourful, and the breadth of his work, still highly regarded, is infused with similar vigor.
In these short stories, Defoe succinctly emblazons his style upon subjects as diverse as apparitions, pirates, and politics. This volume is brought to your ears by Richard Mitchley and Ghizela Rowe.
