The two volume autobiography of Malcolm Muggeridge, the English journalist and satirist. As a young man, Muggeridge was a left-wing sympathiser and travelled to Moscow in the early 1930s but he later became an influential anti-communist. He worked for the British government as a soldier and a spy during the Second World War. In his later years, he became outspoken on religious and moral issues and helped bring Mother Teresa to popular attention in the West.
Both books are in good readable condition. There is light wear to the wrapper's edges and the back panel of Vol 2's wrapper has some end-of-shelf sun fading. Obituary neatly laid in to vol 2.
