Editorial Reviews

Review

PRAISE FOR THE OUTSIDER

“Forsyth’s real life has been almost as thrilling as the stories he’s created in his 15 novels. Forsyth details his many once-in-a-lifetime experiences [and] packs his stories with history both personal and global. A riveting and refreshing memoir.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“A writer of thrillers whose life is one, too . . . The man has lived an amazing life. Call it stranger than fiction.” —The Washington Post
 
“In the rich crop of conspiracy thrillers . . . Mr. Forsyth, author of the incomparable Day of the Jackal, was first among equals. [Now] he brings his considerable narrative gifts to bear on himself. . . . Spectacular.” —The Wall Street Journal
 
“Acclaimed thriller writer Forsyth delivers a charming autobiography about his real-life adventures around the globe. His tales of derring-do are a pleasure to read, especially when coupled with his self-deprecating humor, but his most endearing quality is his ravenous curiosity, which pulled him from one exotic location to another. Forsyth has seen it all. After living such an exciting life, he has earned his bragging rights.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
“Frederick Forsyth has never let us down in his spy thrillers. Their authenticity rings with truth and action for one very simple reason: Forsyth’s own life was every bit as exciting and filled with danger as his characters’. . . . With self-deprecating humor, wit, and the charm of a born storyteller, Forsyth shares his adventures and misadventures with as much zest as his legendary thrillers.” —Bookreporter.com
