10am
Upper Room Town Hall
£7

‘The Frankenstein Mutation of the Fascist movement to which Max had belonged…tore at parts of his identity and the way he remembered his past.’ Maxwell Knight was rumoured to be an inspiration for the James Bond character ‘M’ . Henry Hemming in his own words celebrate[s]…brave men and women who chose to let go of a part of themselves – who gave over their lives, really, anonymously and for very little reward – to a spymaster they trusted, and for a country they believed in.’ This year ‘M’ is to be adapted for a television drama by Matt Charman, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on Bridge of Spies.
‘a terrific book, well researched and superbly written’ The Guardian
Henry Hemming studied history at university. He has written for, among others, The Economist, The Times, FT Magazine and The Washington Post. His five previous works of non-fiction include Misadventure in the Middle East and most recently, Churchill’s Iceman.
