Summary: "An incredible feat of unmasking and revelation; the result is a meticulous, judicious, and ultimately moving account of Blunt's life.A profound study." Newsday "[A] sympathetic, expertly paced and altogether enthralling biography.Astonishingly assured and accomplished. I haven't enjoyed a biography so much since Judith Thurman's Secrets of the Flesh: A Life of Colette. " The Washington Post Book World "Shrewd.well and sympathetically told." The New York Review of Books "[An] excellent case study.Blunt's own evolution [as a spy].is almost a caricature of the genre, and it is Carter's achievement in Anthony Blunt: His Lives to have promoted it above the commonplace."

Inhaltsangabe: This brilliant psychological examination of the infamous Cambridge art-historian-turned-spy reveals the multiple masks worn by the Cold War?s most notorious traitor. From young member of the Bloomsbury circle to left-wing intellectual, from closeted homosexual ascending to the Establishment to object of public denunciation by Margaret Thatcher, the arc of Blunt?s life is at once a deeply nuanced account of fifty years in the British power elite and an astonishing history of one of the century?s greatest deceits.
