Welcome to Edward Wilson's website
Edward Wilson is a highly acclaimed writer, whose novels focus on espionage and the Cold War.
Wilson, who has won praise from the Times Literary Supplement as well as The Mail on Sunday, is a rare example of a literary novelist with wide popular appeal. The author is a master of ambiguity who creates likeable villains and detestable heroes.
He uses his background as a scholar, soldier and cosmopolitan expatriate to create authentic settings and verifiable plots.
Wilson’s fictional characters blend seamlessly with real historical ones. His novels evoke a shadow world where love and betrayal exist side by side and where nothing is certain.
It’s not just a world of spies and politicians; it’s the reader’s own world too.
