Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bush-Cheney Era Story This makes the spy business seem completely nasty and not a calling for anyone with a heart. Made me think of Bush and Cheney and Guantanamo Cuba. Only recommended for someone big on realism.

John le Carré was born in 1931.

A Delicate Truth is his twenty-third novel.

Editorial Reviews

“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 MailAn 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 intrigu
