Robert Harris had a successful career as a reporter for Panorama and Newsnight, then as a political editor for The Observer, before becoming one of the UK’s finest writers of historical fiction and thrillers. An international bestseller, his work has been translated into 37 languages. He is the author of Fatherland, An Officer and a Spy, Enigma, Archangel, Pompeii and The Ghost.

His forthcoming novel, Dictator, is the long-awaited conclusion to his acclaimed Cicero trilogy. A gripping read, it encompasses some of the most epic events in human history, from the collapse of the Roman republic and the subsequent civil war, to the assassination of Julius Caesar. Join us to hear Robert discuss power, politics, corruption, ambition, history and humanity in conversation with Carol Ackroyd.
