An absolutely triumphant bestseller

Absolute Friends has been hailed everywhere as the masterpiece toward which John le Carré has been building since the fall of Communism. This thrilling tale of loyalty, betrayal, and international espionage spans the lives of two friends from the riot-torn West Berlin of the 1960s to the grimy looking-glass of Cold War Europe to the present day of terrorism and uncertain new alliances alliances that aren’t always what they seem to be.

About the Author:

John le Carré was born in 1931. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a worldwide 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, A Most Wanted Man, and Our Kind of Traitor. A Delicate Truth is his twenty-third novel.

From AudioFile:

Le Carré brings his superb reading talents-sonorous, cultured voice; gift for accents; deft expressiveness-to the story of Ted Mundy, a fumbling, well-meaning Brit; a '60s radical who stumbles into Cold War spying with German friend Sascha; a defector to the East who hates his Stasi masters. Years later, Sascha involves Ted in an idealistic scheme leading to a world more shadowy yet, where both "good guys" and "bad" are startlingly evil. As le Carré moves from ironic sympathy to scorn and outrage, he exploits his story to express a desperately cynical worldview that some will call skewed, if not delusional. But his knowledge, intelligence, and passion demand a hearing, and his performance-he is simply one of the best author readers there is-makes that hearing a pleasure, however bitter the material.
