Advanced Grammar in Use, Third Edition, Martin Hewings, 2013.

   There are 100 units in the book, each looking at a particular area of grammar. Some sections within each unit focus on the particular use of a grammatical pattern, such as will be + -ing (as in will be travelling): others explore grammatical contrasts, such as whether to use would or used to in reporting past events, or when we use except or except for. The 100 units are grouped under a number of headings such as Tenses and The future, and you can find details of this in the Contents. Each unit consists of two pages. On the left-hand page are explanations and examples; on the right-hand page are practice exercises. The letters next to each exercise show you which section(s) of the left-hand page you need to understand to do that exercise.

Present continuous and present simple 2.
We often use the present simple and present continuous in stories and jokes in informal spoken English to create the impression that events are happening now. This can make them more direct and exciting and hold people's attention:
She goes up to this man and looks straight into his eyes. He's not wearing his glasses, and he doesn't recognise her...
This man's playing golf when a kangaroo bounds up to him, grabs his club and hits his ball about half a mile ...

The main events are usually described in sequence using the present simple and longer background events are described using the present continuous.
In narratives and anecdotes the present simple can be used to highlight an event. Often it is used after past tenses and with a phrase such as suddenly or all of a sudden:
I was sitting in the park, reading a newspaper, when all of a sudden this dog jumps at me.
