Summary
"From his years serving in British Intelligence during the Cold War to a career as a writer that took him from war-torn Cambodia to Beirut on the cusp of the 1982 Israeli invasion to Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, John Le Carrâe has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his highly anticipated memoir, Le Carrâe is as funny as he is incisive, reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels."--Dust jacket
Summary
The author of such best-selling suspense novels as A Delicate Truth shares personal anecdotes from his life, discussing subjects ranging from his Cold War-era service in British intelligence to his work as a writer in Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall
