He was a blank screen on which fantasy and delusion were projected." "Anthony Blunt: His Lives reveals the man behind the myths and rumours: aesthete, communist, homosexual, spy. As Surveyor of the Queen's Pictures and Director of the Courtauld Institute, Blunt's position as a stellar member of the Establishment had seemed utterly assured. But, in 1979, Margaret Thatcher exposed him as a former Soviet spy, and Blunt was stripped of his knighthood and became a figure of universal opprobrium."--Jacket." ;
