(UK) SUNDAY PEOPLE: NELSON'S COLUMN







Penn and Penner

Retired US spy Robert Eringer calls to remind me he wrote the novel Cloak & Corkscrew five years ago featuring Hollywood movie star Josh Penner as a CIA “access” agent dishing dirt on famous people to the spooks.
Robert confesses he had Sean Penn in mind when he created Penner. Penn is now infamous for his interview with El Chapo, aka Mexican drugs baron Joaquin Guzman, who was then recaptured. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it?
