Sarah Rainsford – Edinburgh International Book Festival [SOLD OUT]
16th July, 2018
Join BBC news correspondent Sarah Rainsford, formerly based in Havana, to explore Graham Greene’s hilarious novel about Wormold, the vacuum-cleaner salesman-turned-double agent. Our Man in Havana is set in pre-revolutionary Cuba, a time of decadence and depravity, and Greene uses the story to poke fun at the intelligence services, especially MI6. Expect an open discussion from the start; you can read the book ahead of the event or be inspired to pick it up afterwards.
