A Tony- and Oscar-winning writer, Sidney Sheldon was an author who appealed to generations with his storytelling. Using simple sentences that belie complex narrative arcs and complicated characters, it is no wonder that he sold well over 300 million copies in more than 50 languages. Sidney Sheldon died in 2007, but his books live on. As does his reputation as one of the best fiction writers of our time.
Although he dabbled as a shoe salesman, cloakroom attendant, radio announcer and songwriter, he struck gold when he turned to screenwriting, and then fiction. His books have compelling storylines, with strong women protagonists. They are their own superheroes, and steer their own ship tenaciously. Sheldon compounds these bold characters with stories that progress at breathless pace.
So, whether you are keen on introducing someone to the wonderful world of Sheldon, want to give it a go yourself, or simply want to revisit your favorite author’s best works, these box sets are a perfect buy. Three books apiece, these sets are a true collector’s item.
