Jeffrey Archer


Jeffrey Archer has had a varied career, from a stint as President of Oxford University’s Athletics Club and running for Great Britain in 1966, to time as a charity fundraiser and owner of an art gallery. Archer spent five years as a Member of Parliament and has spent twenty­ seven years as a Member of the House of Lords.

More recently, Archer has turned his hand to writing, topping bestseller lists around the world. He is the only author ever to have been a number one bestseller in fiction (nineteen times), short stories (four times) and nonfiction (The Prison Diaries). His latest novel, Heads You Win (2018) tells the story of Alexander Karpenko, a talented teenager who flees the USSR with his mother after the assassination of his father by the KGB. At the docks they are confronted with an irreversible choice: should they board a container ship bound for America or Great Britain? Alexander leaves that choice to the toss of a coin...

Join Archer for a lively discussion about his life and writing with a chance to ask questions.
