Christopher Hull

Christopher Hull was born in London. He visited Latin America for the first time in 1991, travelling around South America for one year, before teaching English as a foreign language in Brazil in 1993. He visited Cuba for the first time as a modern languages year abroad student in 1997-98, witnessing Che Guevara's funeral and the visit of Pope John Paul II. He has returned to the Caribbean island many times since. After studying for a PhD at the University of Nottingham (UK), his first book concentrated on Britain's relations with Cuba during the first six decades of the 20th century. His second book (2019) focuses on British author Graham Greene's many visits to Cuba both before and after the 1959 Cuban Revolution, and the real story behind the British author's 1958 spy-fiction satire 'Our Man in Havana' and its 1959 film version starring Alec Guinness and Noël Coward.
