Jeffrey Archer ( Jeffrey Howard Archer , Baron Archer of Weston-super-Mare) Great Britain, 15.4.1940 Born in Mark, Somerset in the family of a professional military man. He studied at Oxford Bracenoses College, then received a diploma in sports coach. Since 1968, practically from school, he became chairman of the board of his own company Arrow Enterprises, a year later he was elected to the British Parliament, where he spent five years. Subsequently, he held a number of equally significant posts, including in 1985-1986 he was deputy chairman of the Conservative Party (under the patronage of Margaret Thatcher, a big fan of Archer`s work). Since 1984, Archer has been President Emeritus of the Linguistic Society at the University of Glasgow. Archer turned to literature when he was forced to leave parliament - he found himself in debt due to an unsuccessful business deal and decided to "put on paper his experience for the edification of others." The novel was published in the United States and became an instant bestseller, and the next book allowed Archer to pay off all his debts. By that time, in his own words, he was so carried away by writing that he could not stop. As a result, to date, more than twenty novels have come out from the pen of Jeffrey Archer. In 1993, Jeffrey Archer was elected to the House of Lords of the English Parliament. In fact, Archer is a major in the Anglo-American literary market on the level of John Grisham and Frederick Forsythe. There he is read avidly, more than 120 million copies of books have been sold around the world, almost all novels become bestsellers, and only the author`s annual sales income is 1 million pounds a year. The works, of course, have been filmed many times, and in a variety of forms; according to the same "Not a penny more, not a penny less" the well-known company Domark released a computer game. But the career of a successful businessman and author of international bestsellers did not satisfy our hero. He moved into politics, and again successfully - in 1969 he was elected to the British Parliament and, at 29, became the youngest member of the House of Commons. Soon he rose to the position of deputy chairman of the ruling conservative party, and became, by the way, a personal friend of Margaret Thatcher, a big fan of his talent. And in 1992, the Queen of Great Britain awarded Archer the title of lord for the political and literary merits of the writer. He was the owner of one of the finest art collections. His answer to one of the guests about the location of the toilet became famous: "Behind Picasso, to the left of Matisse." But the climax of his career came when the British lord, multimillionaire, famous writer decided in 1999 to run for mayor of London. Archer`s chances were rated extremely high (many generally saw him as a future prime minister). And suddenly everything collapsed overnight due to the outbreak of a scandal. Back in 1987, he filed a lawsuit against the Daily Star tabloid, who accused Archer of being a prostitute and sued them for an unprecedented then compensation for libel - half a million pounds. However, in the midst of the mayoral campaign, it turned out that Archer had fabricated his alibi, and in 2001 the great lion received four years in prison for perjury. He served two years honestly, wrote several books in prison, was recently released, rarely appears in public and for the most "irrevocable" reasons like Thatcher`s 80th birthday, but his books are selling as well as ever.  en.wikipedia , Jeffrey Archer & # 039; s official Web site , IMDb .
