Review quote

John le Carre is as recognizable a writer as Dickens or Austen * Financial Times * When I was under house arrest I was helped by the books of John le Carre ... they were a journey into the wider world ... These were the journeys that made me feel that I was not really cut off from the rest of humankind * Aung San Suu Kyi * No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times * Guardian *show more
