Anthony Blunt: His Lives

Front Cover
Picador, Mar 19, 2003 - Biography & Autobiography - 608 pages
This brilliant psychological examination of the infamous Cambridge art-historian-turned-spy reveals the multiple masks worn by the Cold War’s most notorious traitor. From young member of the Bloomsbury circle to left-wing intellectual, from closeted homosexual ascending to the Establishment to object of public denunciation by Margaret Thatcher, the arc of Blunt’s life is at once a deeply nuanced account of fifty years in the British power elite and an astonishing history of one of the century’s greatest deceits.
