My country right or wrong, it’s said… but did Mata Hari or Guy Burgess really think that?

Clapham Writers curate a rich programme of author talks and panel discussions. From ancient Rome to today’s HUMINT by drone, it’s always been a thrilling and deadly business. Our three bestselling writers debate the facts and fiction of spies, led by local author Elizabeth Buchan (who has two wartime novels to her name) with:

Andrew Lownie, prizewinning biographer of Guy Burgess, Stalin’s Englishman

Writer and TV director Rick Stroud, whose Lonely Courage tells the gripping story of SOE heroines.

Author and journalist, Jane Thynne, whose bestselling Clara Vine novels are set in Nazi Germany.
