Product description


“Le Carré’s strongest, most powerful novel…. Extraordinary.” - The New York Times

“Le Carré continues to be the world’s most reliable witness to the vicissitudes of international paranoia; his books conceive of a Western world that has a costly obsession with its possible enemies; he shows you this world’s secret missions; its botched jobs, its manifold attempts to thwart the corrupting and sometimes terrifying idealism of others, while keeping the reader close to the exact lineaments of the way we live now.” - New York Review of Books

“Astounding, nearly perfect . . . beautifully paced, awesomely crafted . . . desperately readable” - San Francisco Chronicle

“If novels…keep the moral imagination alive, then…A Most Wanted Man brilliantly performs the function…and does so as compellingly as the work which first made his name, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold.” - The Globe and Mail

An instant classic…Provocative and incendiary.” - USA Today

“Black, brilliant, hypnotic…Unhesitatingly recommended.” - Independent on Sunday

"Le Carre's singular genius is to tell small, exquisitely crafted human tales...that shed light on great worldly endeavours." - Winnipeg Free Press

"John le Carre, eminent novelist and former spy..has done more than almost any other writer to forge our idea of how the game is played." - Whig-Standard (Kingston, ON)

"An appealing, morally-engaginag nd terrifying novel, which exemplifies Le Carre's take on modern social injustice...A suspenseful masterpiece of intriguing and complicated subplots with a realism that captivates one's attention from page to page." - Tandem

"[Le Carre] is still sharp, still fizzing with ideas, and fuelled by a righteous fury...his latest book...speaks to one of his preoccupations: the excesses...of American foreign policy and the immoral nature of the intelligence practices that underpin it. - Hamilton Spectator

"A first-class novel about the most pressing moral and political concerns of our time." - The Telegraph (UK)

“…the famous British author has used the genre of the spy novel as subtle exposures of the meaning of loyalty, betrayal and deceit. Le Carre burst on the scene in the 1960s as an antidote to the posturings of Ian Fleming’s superhero James Bond. Le Carres’s heroes were the anti-Bond… They were lovable for their often futile strivings for the Western way of life.” - The Globe and Mail

“As the greatest spy novelist of our times John le Carre has always used as the bedrock of his craft the strange ways people are bound to each other.” - Calgary Sun

“[A Most Wanted Man] stands as one of the most sophisticated fictional responses to the war on terror yet published, a humane novel which takes on the world's latest binarism and exposes troubling shades of grey.” - The Guardian (UK)

“Le Carré's prose remains clear and unflashy; as unflashy as his spies, who are far more cloak than dagger. This lack of James Bond gadgets and dead bodies make the story all the more credible.” - The Telegraph (UK)
