Author of 11 best-selling novels including the Cicero trilogy, Fatherland and An Officer and a Spy, former journalist and master of thrillers Robert Harris visits the Audible Studios to discuss his latest novel, Munich, set against the backdrop of the fateful Munich conference in 1938 that changed history.
Harris' journey into publishing began with nonfiction titles such as A Higher Form of Killing and The Making of Neil Kinnock, but after winning a contract in 1991 to write a biography of Le Carre's life, things took a dramatic turn. Le Carre would not allow the biography to be published until after his death, so Harris went about preparing the first of his fiction titles, Fatherland, which consequently changed his life and thrust Harris into the limelight. Robert's unique ability to weave fiction through historical events makes him one of the UK's most successful thriller writersm and he's here to discuss the inspiration behind Munich, the intricate research behind his books and the underlying current throughout all of his novels.
