Humphrey Hawksley

MAN ON EDGE

Thursday 1 October, 6:00pm-7:00pm
Fowey Town Hall
£10

Humphrey Hawksley, a former BBC foreign correspondent, and critically acclaimed novelist, talks about his recently published, contemporary political thriller series Man on Ice. His award-winning television documentaries examine unpalatable topics such as human rights abuse in global trade and the risks of exporting Western-style democracy into some societies. Humphrey has reported from crises around the world, and his understanding of the behaviours of global superpowers have informed his alarmingly realistic political thrillers – the inspiration for Man on Ice came from Little Diomede, a tiny Alaskan island which forms the only US-Russian border, that he came across after Sarah Palin’s widely mocked remarks that Alaskans can see Russia from their backyards.
