9780241962190: The Secret Pilgrim

The Berlin Wall has come down. The Cold War is over.

Ned, who learned his tradecraft at Smiley's feet, has been put out to grass at Sarratt, known otherwise as the Nursery, the training school for young entrants to the British Secret Service. Haunted by what he did in his own career, but wanting to impart wisdom to the latest intake of trainees, he invites Smiley to speak to this year's class.

To Ned's surprise, Smiley, long retired, accepts.

As Smiley recalls some of the key events of his career, so Ned examines the cost in human lives in the course of his own. Ned's reflections - stretching from Scotland's Western Isles to Israel and Hamburg and Cambodia - and superimposed on Smiley's recollections, provide a rare glimpse into the hearts and minds of a generation of spies made obselete by the passing of the Cold War.

Recensione:

Le Carré writing at his exceptional best ( Mail on Sunday)

Consummate and enthralling ( Observer)

L'autore:

John le Carré was born in 1931. The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, his third novel, was first published in 1963 and secured him a world-wide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. His recent novels include The Constant Gardener, Absolute Friends, The Mission Song and A Most Wanted Man. Our Kind of Traitor is his twenty-second novel and is published by Penguin.
