John Le Carre: The Biography
Bargain Book Copy
Over half a century since The Spy Who Came in from the Cold made John le Carré a worldwide, bestselling sensation, David Cornwell, the man behind the pseudonym, remains an enigma. Little is really known of one of the world's most successful writers.
Adam Sisman's masterful and insightful biography reveals a man whose own life - from a difficult lonely childhood, through marriage and family life, to recruitment by both M15 and M16 and eventual emergence as the master of the spy novel - has been as complex and confounding as any of his novels. Written with exclusive access to David Cornwell himself, to his private archive and to the most important people in his life, this is the definitive biography of a major writer.
