Robert Harris is one of the world’s acclaimed novelists, renowned for wildly popular World War Two thrillers (Fatherland, Enigma) that marry intrepid research and high-octane storytelling. Ben Macintyre is a master storyteller whose rollicking non-fiction portraits of wartime spies (Operation Mincemeat, The Spy and the Traitor) have won rave reviews—and a permanent place on the bestseller lists. In this Hot Docs exclusive, these brilliant minds will stream in live from the UK to discuss their common passion for history and their exciting new books: Harris’s V2, a riveting novel set against the backdrop of the Nazi bombing of London; and Macintyre’s Agent Sonya, the true story behind the Cold War’s most daring female spy. 

In conversation with Jessica Johnson, Executive Editor and Creative Director of The Walrus.
