Democracy

24 May

This play by Michael Frayn delves into an episode in modern Germany’s history when East German spy Günter Guillaume infiltrated West Germany’s chancellor Willy Brandt. While serving a Communist spy, Guillaume was Brandt’s secretary with access to all correspondence and many discussions.

In parts I found the story hard to follow, but it is a good spy story, not as good as MI-5, but good.
