Father’s Day is fast approaching and trying to find the perfect gift for yours may be proving to be a bit of a challenge for you.
If they’re fans of the bestselling author Wilbur Smith, Wilbur Smith: The Early Years Collection Special Edition would be his dream come true. The author is a global bestseller of an incredible 34 novels, which have been translated into 26 languages. Overall he has sold more than 122 million books, and has even had some of them adapted into films.
Wilbur Smith: The Early Years Collection Special Edition is full of never before seen footage and information about the much loved author. It includes a DVD, with up close and personal interviews with Smith, where he discusses everything from growing up to his early experiences with writing. There is even some bonus footage of him giving tips to aspiring novelists.
Haven’t yet had a chance to read his first novel, When the Lion Feeds, due to lack of time? That’s okay, as there is a six CD audio book included, meaning you can listen to it as you’re doing other things, whether it’s driving to work or cooking dinner. The audio CD is read by Tim Piggot-Smith, the celebrated author and actor.
Not only do you receive the DVD and audiobook, but you also get to see one of Wilbur Smith’s short stories, not seen for 50 years. On Flinder’s Face was his first published work.
Last but not least, you will get the chance to see photographs which have never been seen by the public before. Smith’s personal family photo album will give you an insightful glimpse into his life.
We thought the boxed set was well presented, containing lots of information and uncovering little-known facts about Smith that our trivia-loving Dad enjoyed discovering.
The special edition box set of Wilbur Smith: The Early Years Collection is due to be released on 15th June 2014 and will be available from all good book sellers including Amazon.
