Paperback / softback


SPIES... FAMILIES... SECRETSOriginally published as LOOKING FOR MR NOBODYA fascinating true story of one man's connection to the Cambridge Spy Ring and his daughter's search for the truth. 'A book which deserves nothing but praise' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH'What makes [this book] memorable is Rees's moving account of her own attempt to come to terms with her father's "secret" ... her poignant memoir gives a rare insight into the experiences of families whose fathers joined the ranks of "Stalin's Englishmen"' SUNDAY TIMESSince Goronwy Rees's death, his daughter Jenny has had to cope with the frequently made allegation that her father was another of the spies recruited at Cambridge in the 1930s.

He never disguised his friendship with Guy Burgess who, with Donald Maclean, had defected to Moscow in 1951, and in 1979 Rees helped Andrew Boyle unmask Anthony Blunt, the Fourth Man.

So, was Rees himself actually a spy? The opening of KGB files has acted as a spur to Jenny Rees in her quest to exorcise the past.

The result is full of unexpected revelation, made all the more moving as she discovers for the first time the secret life of her father. Previously published as LOOKING FOR MR NOBODY
