Only an idiot believes that he can write the truth about himself.
Here Lies is an insightful look inside the life and work of one of our greatest thriller writers. In this Edgar Award winning autobiography, Ambler applies his deft touch to his own story: his South London childhood, his brief engineering career, his time as an advertising copywriter, and, of course, the publication of his revolutionary spy novels. He then explores his time at war, his service in the film division of the British War Office, and his resulting screenplays.
Here Ambler presents a compelling account of a life as enigmatic as it was exceptional.
“A deftly written portrait of a colourful career.”
