Overview

 

The definitive biography of the internationally adored author of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and A Perfect Spy—arguably one of the most important and influential writers of the post-World War II period—by the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning biographer Adam Sisman.

In this definitive biography—blessed by John le Carré himself—Adam Sisman reveals the man behind the bestselling persona. In John le Carré, Sisman shines a spotlight on David Cornwell, an expert at hiding in plain sight—“born to lying,” he wrote in 2002, “bred to it, trained to it by an industry that lies for a living, practiced in it as a novelist.”

Of course, the pseudonym “John le Carré” has helped to keep the public at a distance. 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), and explores his background in British intelligence, as well as his struggle to become a writer, and his personal life. Sisman has 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.

Who is John le Carré? Intriguing, thorough, and packed with entertaining detail, this biography will be a treat for the legions of le Carré fans.

 

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Joseph Kanon
…admiring without being toadying, detailed without being overstuffed, highly readable and, above all, knowledgeable about the work…Sisman is the kind of thorough, serious writer who inspires trust—one feels that if he has been discreet, he doesn't compromise our understanding of the life…Biography is a balancing act, and mostly Sisman gets the proportions right…Most biographies have to slog through an only marginally interesting youth until the real story kicks in. Not here. This is a childhood worthy of Dickens, filled with pathos and callous adult indifference, but also a swirl of topsy-turvy scenes all dominated by a larger-than-life father so colorful and outsize he might have been sketched by Phiz…This is very much (and rightly) a writer's biography, with telling glimpses of the writing process…and irresistible trivia…But most important, Sisman shows us le Carré's almost monastic devotion to his craft, a man for whom writing is life.
