This book of eight stories describing the fascinating world of antiques and fine art is the author's first literary offering, and has been some five years in the creation. Although he describes it as a fictional work, that is not strictly accurate because some of the events are in fact completely true. Some, however, only contain a grain of truth whilst the remainder are pure fiction, the products of a fertile imagination...but could be true; some dealers and collectors will almost certainly have similar reminiscences. The completely and partially true stories have been garnered over the years from dealer and collector friends and acquaintances, often during lulls in auction proceedings to ease the boredom of mediocre lots, but with suitable and appropriate embellishment where considered necessary. If the reader has a rye or droll sense of humour he or she should find some of the episodes amusing, and on a more serious note, hopefully interesting and even educational. Enjoy!
