An Officer and a Spy: The Dreyfus affair
Speaker: Robert Harris
Robert Harris is well known as the author of a number of worldwide bestsellers including Fatherland, Enigma, Archangel, Pompeii, Imperium and The Ghost. His work has been translated into thirty-three languages. Now he turns his hand to the Dreyfus Affair, that terrible spy scandal which shook the French 1890s establishment to the core.
Harris has created a masterpiece. Firstly this is a book about spies and the demands that are made of them by their irascible masters. But this is also 1895 with a strong flavour of 2003. The real subject is espionage and its relationship with politics. A not to be missed opportunity to hear a master of his craft.
Gin will be served before the event, kindly provided by Pickering’s Gin.
