Robert Harris in conversation with James Holland
September 1938. Hitler is determined to start a war. Chamberlain is desperate to preserve the peace. The issue is to be decided in a city that will forever afterwards be notorious for what takes place there – Munich. Robert Harris’s new spy thriller, set over the four days of the 1938 Munich Conference, confirms him as the pre-eminent historical novelist of our time.
Robert Harris is the author of eleven best-selling novels including the Cicero Trilogy, Fatherland, and An Officer and a Spy, which won four prizes including the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction.
James Holland is a writer, broadcaster and Second World War historian.
