Classic Collections – Storytelling

For a limited time, you can buy a bundle of themed Eye back issues – at a bargain price
Occasionally you meet someone whose business card says ‘storyteller’ – which might prompt some of us to run to a bar several blocks away – but usually they have the grace to hand over the card with an ironic shrug. As one such person said to us the other day, ‘Yes, Nathan Barley has come true!’
