About this title

Synopsis:

Eschewing the confines of traditional biography and inverting the glamour of espionage, acclaimed biographer Millicent Dillon blends fact and fiction to chronicle the human drama of Harry Gold, the American chemist who became a Soviet spy.

In casting Gold's story as a novel, Dillon creates a gripping narrative from the true events of political life in America from the thirties through the McCarthy era, from Gold's recruitment to his training in tradecraft to his role in Julius Rosenberg's and Klaus Fuchs's atomic espionage at Los Alamos. The result is a novel with the psychological depth of Graham Greene's The Third Man, the taut pacing of All the President' s Men, and the moral poignancy of Phillip Roth's I Married A Communist.

About the Author:

Millicent Dillon is the author of You Are Not I: A Portrait of Paul Bowles, A Little Original Sin: The Life and Work of Jane Bowles, After Egypt: Isadora Duncan and Mary Cassatt and three works of fiction, The Dance of the Mothers, The One in the Back is Medea and Baby Perpetua and Other Stories. She also edited The Viking Portable Paul and Jane Bowles. She lives in San Francisco.
