The definitive biography of one of the world's most famous living writers. John le Carre is a worldwide bestselling sensation, but the man behind the pseudonym, David Cornwell, remains an enigma. From being abandoned by his mother at the age of five, to being raised by his conman father, being recruited to both MI5 and MI6, marriage and family life, Sisman explores the concept of espionage and its significance in human terms. Written with exclusive access to Cornwell himself, his private archive, his family and friends, and featuring a wealth of unseen photographic material.
