Description : Read Now Our Woman In Havana by Sarah Rainsford and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. it was only when i reread our man in havana that i realised i shared a street with the hapless spy hero of graham greene’s novel. my office was just a short distance from the fictional vacuum cleaner store run by jim wormold... a piece of paper strapped to the swirling, rusted window bars announces that the lower floor flat is for sale. i wonder if the owner’s selling up to leave lamparilla and the ‘ruins of havana’, like wormold. sixty years ago, graham greene watched as the cuban revolution unfolded and batista’s regime collapsed. now, as the castro era comes to a close, sarah rainsford, formerly the bbc’s ‘woman in havana’, reports on the lives shaped by fidel’s giant social experiment and the feelings of a nation as his brother raul steps down. she encounters entrepreneurs full of hope and the disillusioned still looking for a way out. she meets a boxing legend who credits everything he has to the revolution and the dissidents caught on surveillance cameras every time they set foot outside their homes. she also discovers the trailblazing work of ruby hart phillips, new york times correspondent in havana 1937–61 – and a rare woman journalist in a macho world – who reported every step of the revolution and came face to face with fidel himself. through these stories and those still being told, our woman in havana weaves an enthralling, atmospheric portrait of this enigmatic country as it teeters, once more, at a historic crossroads.

Description : Read Now Hitler S Man In Havana by Thomas Schoonover and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. when heinz lüning posed as a jewish refugee to spy for hitler’s abwehr espionage agency, he thought he had discovered the perfect solution to his most pressing problem: how to avoid being drafted into hitler’s army. lüning was unsympathetic to fascist ideology, but the nazis’ tight control over exit visas gave him no chance to escape germany. he could enter hitler’s army either as a soldier . . . or a spy. in 1941, he entered the abwehr academy for spy training and was given the code name “lumann.” soon after, lüning began the service in cuba that led to his ultimate fate of being the only german spy executed in latin america during world war ii. lüning was not the only spy operating in cuba at the time. various allied spies labored in havana; the fbi controlled eighteen special intelligence service operatives, and the british counterintelligence section subchief graham greene supervised secret intelligence service agents; and ernest hemingway’s private agents supplied inflated and inaccurate information about submarines and spies to the u.s. ambassador, spruille braden. lüning stumbled into this milieu of heightened suspicion and intrigue. poorly trained and awkward at his work, he gathered little information worth reporting, was unable to build a working radio and improperly mixed the formulas for his secret inks. lüning eventually was discovered by british postal censors and unwittingly provided the inspiration for graham greene’s our man in havana. in chronicling lüning’s unlikely trajectory from a troubled life in germany to a caribbean firing squad, thomas d. schoonover makes brilliant use of untapped documentary sources to reveal the workings of the famed abwehr and the technical and social aspects of lüning’s spycraft. using archival sources from three continents, schoonover offers a narrative rich in atmospheric details to reveal the political upheavals of the time, not only tracking lüning’s activities but also explaining the broader trends in the region and in local counterespionage. schoonover argues that ambitious cuban and u.s. officials turned lüning’s capture into a grand victory. for at least five months after lüning’s arrest, u.s. and cuban leaders—j. edgar hoover, fulgencio batista, nelson rockefeller, general manuel benítez, ambassador spruille braden, and others—treated lüning as a dangerous, key figure for a nazi espionage network in the gulf-caribbean. they reworked his image from low-level bumbler to master spy, using his capture for their own political gain. in the sixty years since lüning’s execution, very little has been written about nazi espionage in latin america, partly due to the reticence of the u.s. government. revealing these new historical sources for the first time, schoonover tells a gripping story of lüning’s life and capture, suggesting that lüning was everyone’s man in havana but his own.

Description : Read Now Waiting For Snow In Havana by Carlos Eire and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a childhood in a privileged household in 1950s havana was joyous and cruel, like any other-but with certain differences. the neighbour's monkey was liable to escape and run across your roof. surfing was conducted by driving cars across the breakwater. lizards and firecrackers made frequent contact. carlos eire's childhood was a little different from most. his father was convinced he had been louis xvi in a past life. at school, classmates with fathers in the batista government were attended by chauffeurs and bodyguards. at a home crammed with artifacts and paintings, portraits of jesus spoke to him in dreams and nightmares. then, in january 1959, the world changes: batista is suddenly gone, a cigar-smoking guerrilla has taken his place, and christmas is cancelled. the echo of firing squads is everywhere. and, one by one, the author's schoolmates begin to disappear-spirited away to the united states. carlos will end up there himself, without his parents, never to see his father again. narrated with the urgency of a confession, waiting for snow in havana is both an ode to a paradise lost and an exorcism. more than that, it captures the terrible beauty of those times in our lives when we are certain we have died-and then are somehow, miraculously, reborn.

Somerset Maugham and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. fact is a poor story-teller as maugham reminds us. fact starts a story at random, rambles on inconsequently and tails off , leaving loose ends, without a conclusion. it works up to an interesting situation, has no sense of climax and whittles away its dramatic effects in irrelevance. while some novelists believe this is a proper model for fiction, maugham believes that fiction should not seek to copy life, but instead choose from life what is curious, telling, and dramatic, but keep to it closely enough not to shock the reader into disbelief. in short, fiction should excite, interest, and absorb the reader. ashenden: the british agent is founded on maugham's experiences in the english intelligence department during world war i, but rearranged for the purposes of fiction. this fascinating book contains the most expert stories of espionage ever written. for a period of time after it was first published the book became official required reading for persons entering the secret service. the plot follows the imaginary john ashenden who during world war i is a spy for british intelligence. he is sent first to geneva and later to russia. instead of one story from start to finish, the chapters contain individual stories involving many different characters. all of the people whom ashenden meet during his travels have their own reason for being involved in the spy game, and each are more complex than they first look.
