“Having just moved to Miami Beach, I am reading the fabulous T.D. Allman’s two histories of Florida and Miami. He is amusing, insightful and contrarian. But having just written a spy biography, I also just read Ben Macintyre’s astonishing new take on Kim Philby, A Spy Among Friends. In the same vein, I am reading David Ignatius’ new spy novel, The Director. And finally, a serious history and riveting memoir, Avi Shavit’s My Promised Land.”
Kai Bird, author of
The Good Spy: The Life
and Death of Robert Ames
Bird appears 8 p.m. Friday at Books & Books, 265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables
