Graham Greene, Hugh Greene - The Spy`s Bedside Book
Hutchinson, 2007
272 str.
tvrdi povez
stanje: vrlo dobro

A classic compendium of espionage stories penned by some of the greatest writers and most famous spies. With a new introduction by Stella Rimington, former head of MI5.

The foxhunter, the angler, the cricketer — each has had his own bedside book. Why not the spy? First published in 1957, The Spy’s Bedside Book provoked much interest and pleasure and, perhaps unsurprisingly, a hundred copies were bought by East German Intelligence. This classic anthology, beautifully repackaged as a small-format hardback, will enthrall readers once again with its tales of espionage from a bygone era, while also revealing a secret or two, such as how to hide messages in a boiled egg and why you should always put pepper in your vodka when in Russia.

Most of the great writers on spying and many practitioners are represented in these pages: Sir Robert Baden-Powell and Belle Boyd, Ian Fleming and John Buchan, Walter Schellenberg and Major Andre, Sir Paul Dukes and Vladimir Petrov — and from the golden age of espionage, William Le Queux and E. Phillips Oppenheim. William Blake, D.H. Lawrence and Thomas Mann, all suspected of espionage in three great wars, are some of the unexpected figures.

Review
`I fear England will be infested with alien agents who have learned their trade from this revealing and mischievous compilation.`-`The Evening News`
From the Inside Flap
On its first appearance in 1957, Hugh and Graham Greene`s The Spy`s Bedside Book provoked a storm of interest, and, perhaps unsurprisingly, 100 copies were bought by East German Intelligence.
This classic anthology, with a new introduction by the former head of MI5, Stella Rimington, includes stories by some of the great writers on spying and many practitioners, including Ian Fleming and John Buchan, Sir Robert Baden-Powell and Belle Boyd, Walter Schellenberg and Major André, Sir Paul Dukes and Vladimir Petrov, and. from the golden age of mystery and suspense, William Le Queux and E. Phillips Oppenheim. There are also some unexpected figures: William Blake, D.H. Lawrence and Thomas Mann, all suspected of spying in three great wars.

How can you hide messages in a boiled egg? Why should you always put pepper in your vodka when in Russia? Answers to these questions and much more can be found in this thrilling collection, which will enthral readers once again with its tales of espionage from a bygone era.

From the Back Cover
The foxhunter, the angler, the cricketer, the lover - each has had his own bedside book. Why not the spy? Spies are, after all, members of a profession much more prone to insomnia than the followers of active or outdoor sports. The hazards and rewards of a spy`s life are described here, and many of the tricks of their trade. Even the most experienced spy may obtain some new hints on the preparation of secret inks or methods of eliminating or checkmating his rivals.
