9780241977545: The Pigeon Tunnel: Stories from My Life

" Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I'm sitting now. "
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 Carre has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his first memoir, le Carre is as funny as he is incisive, reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels. Whether he s writing about the parrot at a Beirut hotel that could perfectly mimic machine gun fire or the opening bars of Beethoven s Fifth, visiting Rwanda s museums of the unburied dead in the aftermath of the genocide, celebrating New Year s Eve 1982 with Yasser Arafat and his high command, interviewing a German woman terrorist in her desert prison in the Negev, listening to the wisdoms of the great physicist, dissident, and Nobel Prize winner Andrei Sakharov, meeting with two former heads of the KGB, watching Alec Guinness prepare for his role as George Smiley in the legendary BBC TV adaptations, or describing the female aid worker who inspired the main character in "The Constant Gardener, " le Carre endows each happening with vividness and humor, now making us laugh out loud, now inviting us to think anew about events and people we believed we understood.
Best of all, le Carre gives us a glimpse of a writer s journey over more than six decades, and his own hunt for the human spark that has given so much life and heart to his fictional characters."

Review:

Praise for "A Delicate Truth"
At the moment a new generation is stumbling upon his work, le Carre is still writing at something close to the top of his game. . . . [He]has not lost his ability to sketch, in a line or two, an entire character. Dwight Garner, "The New York Times Magazine"
The narrative dominoes fall with masterly precision. . . . As ever, le Carre s prose is fluid, carrying the reader toward an inevitable yet nail-biting climax. Olen Steinhauer, "The New York Times Book Review"(front page)
Timelier than ever. "The New York Times"
Well-wrought . . . A sharply sketched gallery of characters. "The Wall Street Journal"
Le Carre is fiercely modern. . . . a confluence of styles, voices, approaches . . . A novel that beckons us beyond any and all expectations. "TheWashington Post"
Gorgeous writing. It s sophisticated storytelling at its very best. "USA Today"
Le Carre is...at full power with a book that draws on a career s worth of literary skill and international analysis. No other writer has charted pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers the public and secret histories of his times. "The Guardian"(UK)"

"Simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster." --"Newsweek"
"Le Carre is still the grand master of the modern literary thriller." --"Time" (Canada)
"The man deserves the Nobel." --"Globe and Mail"
