Stella Rimington (2011 event)

The former director general of MI5 has forged a new career for herself as an author of spy novels, using her inside knowledge of intelligence activities to create a credible new hero, Liz Carlyle. Rimington’s first ever visit to the Book Festival in 2011 coincided with her role as chair of the Man Booker Prize judging panel, and in this event she shares her own new novel as well as some thoughts about the world of fiction in general with Ruth Wishart. Recorded live at the 2011 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
