(Reynolds, Nicholas) Nicholas Reynolds has worked in the fields of modern military history and intelligence off and on for forty years, with some unusual detours. Freshly minted PhD from Oxford University in hand, he joined the United States Marine Corps in the 1970s. He served as a CIA officer at home and abroad. Most recently, he was the historian for the CIA Museum. He currently teaches as an adjunct professor for Johns Hopkins University. The London Review of Books writes that Reynolds’s latest book, Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy (William Morrow), “looks among the shadows and finds a Hemingway not seen before,” revealing for the first time the stunning untold story of Ernest Hemingway’s dangerous secret life — including his role as a Soviet agent code-named “Argo” — that fueled his art and his undoing. A literary biography with the soul of an espionage thriller, Writer, Sailor, Soldier, Spy is an essential contribution to our understanding of the life, work, and fate of one of America’s most legendary authors.
