Editorial Reviews

"Let me be specific: I think the man deserves the Nobel." - The Globe and Mail“As the greatest spy novelist of our times John le Carré has always used as the bedrock of his craft the strange ways people are bound to each other.” - Calgary Sun“In a world where villains can bleed tragedy and heroes may not be so heroic, le Carré is still our keenest arbiter.” - Winnipeg Free Press“No other contemporary novelist has more durably enjoyed the twin badges of being both well read and well regarded.” - Scott Turow“Le Carré, always an intriguing blend of patrician and populist, gives voice to all our contempt for hot-money deals.” - Independent (UK)“I would suggest immortality for John le Carré…. May he write forever!” - Chicago Tribune“A literary master for a generation.” - Observer (UK)
