On Tuesday, Alex Gerlis interviewed Julius Green.
Stars and Spies , Julius’ new book, written with Christopher Andrew, is being published on 14th October. It is a unique examination and a hugely entertaining and original history of the interplay between spying and showbiz, featuring Marlowe and Shakespeare, but focusing mostly on the twentieth century, the golden era of the Cold War and up to the present day.
