More big names from the book world have been announced to join the line-up for next month’s (Fri 22nd -Sun 24th September) Cardiff Book Festival including international best-selling novelist Robert Harris, who will be in conversation with Marcel Theroux on Saturday 23rd September.
Master storyteller Robert Harris, author of eleven bestselling novels including the Cicero Trilogy, Fatherland, An Officer and a Spy, joins Marcel Theroux in conversation. Harris’ novels have been turned into movies such as Bletchley Park thriller Enigma, starring Kate Winslet and Dougray Scott, while an adaptation of the novel The Ghost starred Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan directed by Roman Polanski.
Released just two days before the event, Harris’ new book Munich is a breathtaking spy thriller set in 1938. The novel sees the author skilfully weave gripping fiction with historical events in his own unique style. The story sees Hitler determined to start a war, while British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace. As both leaders head for Munich for a summit that will decide the fate of Europe, two friends- one German, one British- travel alongside them with secrets of their own.
