Perfect Spy by John Le Carre

Book Description

le Carre's most autobiographical novel is also widely held to be his masterpiece, and the finest spy novel of the twentieth-century. 'le Carre's best book, and one of the finest English novels of the twentieth century' Philip Pullman 'Without doubt his masterpiece.' The Sunday Times 'A perfect work of fiction' The Sunday Times 'One of the enduring peaks of imaginative literature in our time' Los Angeles Times Magnus Pym, ranking diplomat, has vanished, believed defected. The chase is on: for a missing husband, a devoted father, and a secret agent. Pym's life, it is revealed, is entirely made up of secrets. Dominated by a father who is also a confidence trickster on an epic scale, Pym has from the age of seventeen been controlled by two mentors. It is these men, racing each other, who are orchestrating the search to find the perfect spy. Described by the author as his most autobiographical work, John le Carre's eleventh novel masterfully blends wit, compassion and unflagging tension with the poignant story of an estranged father and son. 'The best spy novel of all time' Publishers Weekly 'The best English novel since the war' Philip Roth
