John Preston

What happened to turn war hero, MP, media mogul and would-be English gentleman Robert Maxwell into a bloated, amoral wreck? In his gripping book, Fall, journalist John Preston delivers the definitive account of Maxwell's extraordinary rise and scandalous fall. His previous book A Very English Scandal became a BAFTA-winning BBC drama series.  He is in conversation with David Aaronovitch, The Times journalist, radio presenter and author of books including Voodoo Histories: the Role of Conspiracy Theory in Modern History.
