Jeffrey Archer rewrites best selling novel ‘Kane and Abel’June 15th, 2009 - 3:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 15 (ANI): After selling 34 million copies of ‘Kane and Abel’ in 33 different languages, author Jeffrey Archer has now rewritten his best selling novel.
He did so to mark the 30th anniversary of the publication of the ultimate tale of sibling rivalry this autumn.
The tale of two men - one the son of a Boston millionaire, the other of a penniless Polish immigrant, born on the same day on opposite sides of the world - tells of fortune and disaster.
It took him 500 hours over nine months to rewrite the text.
“I just decided, having reread it, that I could improve it. I did not think it would take much,” the Telegraph quoted Archer as saying.
“But, in fact, I added some 24,700 words to the original manuscript. But the final copy ended up 7,000 words shorter than the first edition. So I think it’s better crafted now after 30 years of writing. But the plot remains the same,’ he added. (ANI)
