About this bundle:
February’s Non-Fiction bundle begins in the age of Arthur, takes us through the lives of two literary greats and one of the Cold War’s traitors, into Ireland’s natural world.
Adams investigates the shadow time of post-Roman Britain to unearth what exactly happened in a period otherwise obscured. Bate reveals the tragic lives of Keats and Fitzgerald in parallel, their echoing fates illuminated in their twinned centuries. Dochartaigh gives us a story of a wild Ireland, the power of the natural world, and of how violence and poverty lay beside beauty and hope. Lastly, Kuper gives us an eye into the life of George Blake, an unrepentant double agent of the Cold War.
