A book of the year in The Times, Guardian, Spectator, Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, Stalin’s Englishman is the first full biography of Guy Burgess: the most complex and fascinating of ‘The Cambridge Spies’ - brilliant young men recruited in the 1930s to betray their country to the Soviet Union.

Drawing on twenty years of research in private archives all over the world, Andrew Lownie presents Guy Burgess to have been the most important member of the Cambridge Spy Ring, as well as having an extraordinary range of friends from EM Forster and Lucian Freud to Graham Greene.

Described by the Sunday Telegraph as a ‘superb biography, more riveting than a spy novel’, Lownie unravels the many lives of Guy Burgess in all their intriguing, chilling, colourful and tragi-comic wonder.
