About the Author

John le Carré was born in 1931. After attending the universities of Bern and Oxford, he taught at Eton and spent five years in the British Foreign Service. The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, his third book, secured him a worldwide reputation. He divides his time between England and the Continent.

Reviews

"Superb writing, precise portraiture, clever tricks of tradecraft--all Mr. le Carré's hallmarks are present in this swift, surprising, bittersweet story."
--The Wall Street Journal

"So topical it arrives with the beeping urgency of a news alert."
--The Washington Post

"A word about le Carré's prose: Not only does it hold the coiled energy of a much younger writer, it fits the bitter, angry narrator's voice exceptionally well."
--NPR.org

"Le Carré is one of the best novelists--of any kind--we have."
--Vanity Fair

"Le Carré remains a master at showing us what spies do, wily spiders to the unsuspecting flies they entrap."
--Booklist (starred)

"Deeply pleasurable."
--Vogue

"A tragicomic salute to both the recuperative powers of its has-been hero and the remarkable career of its nonpareil author."
--Kirkus

"John le Carré is the great master of the spy story. . . . The constant flow of emotion lifts him not only above all modern suspense novelists, but above most novelists now practicing."
--Financial Times

"One of our great writers of moral ambiguity, a tireless explorer of that darkly contradictory no-man's land."
--Los Angeles Times

"No other writer has charted--pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers--the public and secret histories of his times."
--The Guardian (UK)
