John Le Carré : the biography

Image of item

First U.S. edition.

In this biography of well-known author John LeCarré, Adam Sisman reveals the man behind the bestselling persona. Sisman shines a spotlight on David Cornwell -- a.k.a. John LeCarré -- an expert at hiding in plain sight. Sisman probes Cornwell's unusual upbringing: abandoned by his mother at the age of only five and raised by his con man father (when not in prison). He explores Cornwell's background in British intelligence, as well as his struggle to become a writer and his personal life. Sisman benefited from unfettered access to Le Carré's private archive, talked to the most important people in his life, and interviewed the man himself at length.
