Praise

“A subtle and acute story of counterespionage marked by restraint, indirection, and intelligence.”
—The New York Times Book Review


“[Le Carré] is one of our great writers of moral ambiguity, a tireless explorer of that darkly contradictory no-man’s-land.”
Los Angeles Times

“Brilliant. Realistic. Constant suspense…excellent writing.”
Observer (London)



“Intelligent, thrilling, surprising … makes most cloak-and-dagger stuff taste of cardboard.” ― Sunday Telegraph (London)

“Brilliant. Realistic. Constant suspense.” ― Observer (London)

“The greatest spy novelist of all time … astounding works of the imagination. — Jake Kerridge” ― Daily Telegraph (London)

“Brilliant, popular, intelligent, thrilling, suspenseful, angry, original, masterful writing. Can’t be topped.” — Armando Iannucci

“An extraordinary writer who brought literary lustre and lived insight to the spy yarn.” — Ian Rankin

“One of those writers who will be read a century from now.” — Robert Harris

“His Smiley novels are key to understanding the mid-20th century.” — Margaret Atwood

“What Joseph Conrad started, John le Carré enshrined and made modern. That is the real achievement of his great novels and why they will endure … we should see him as our contemporary Dickens.” — William Boyd ― New Statesman (London)
