Edith and Kim

Charlotte Philby



4:00pm 1h
The Gibraltar Garrison Library (Festival HQ)

Novelist Charlotte Philby, the granddaughter of the communist double-agent Kim Philby, talks about her fictional retelling of the story of Edith Tudor-Hart, the woman behind the third man.

Kim Philby was introduced to his Soviet handler by Tudor-Hart. Charlotte Philby draws on secret intelligence files on Tudor-Hart and on the private archive letters of her grandfather to tell the story of the mother, lover, revolutionary and spy.

‘Completely fascinating. A sophisticated and brilliantly constructed fictional retelling of a crucial relationship in 20th century espionage history. A tremendous achievement’ William Boyd
