John le Carre (b.1931) has become the leading writer of contemporary spy thrillers. Hugely popular and deeply influential, his novels feature a level of psychological depth and narrative complexity that ranks them at the pinnacle of English fiction. His love of language, particularly the ways in which it can reveal or conceal thought and action, is evident in every piece here. In interviews with Melvyn Bragg, among others, le Carre proves himself to be quick witted, engaging, and deeply passionate about his craft.
