About the Author

John le Carré was born in 1931. For six decades, he wrote novels that came to define our age. The son of a confidence trickster, he spent his childhood between boarding school and the London underworld. At sixteen he found refuge at the university of Bern, then later at Oxford. A spell of teaching at Eton led him to a short career in British Intelligence (MI5&6). He published his debut novel, Call for the Dead, in 1961 while still a secret servant. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a worldwide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. At the end of the Cold War, le Carré widened his scope to explore an international landscape including the arms trade and the War on Terror. His memoir, The Pigeon Tunnel, was published in 2016 and the last George Smiley novel, A Legacy of Spies, appeared in 2017. He died on 12 December 2020.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book !!! Do read it!!!
By Raunak Bhattacharjee on 9 May 2017
John Le Carre's masterly magic in describing diplomatic affairs during the Cold War period has been brought out beautifully in this piece of work. This story is set in Bonn, the capital of the erstwhile West Germany. Wonderfully vivid, it brings out the diplomatic attitude of the servicemen employed and how this attitude makes them easily exploitable. I would recommend this book as a must read.
