Fighting the Queer Cold War in the Untouchable
This chapter examines John Banville's The Untouchable, which relates the gay spy's body to the history of the Cambridge spies and concepts of masculinity. Although the gay spy is accused of leaking information and being unfirm in his alliances, he exposes the ideological biases of heterosexual spies, who often let passion lead them into disclosure of secrets even while they maintain a rigid denial of pleasure.
