About the Author:

Born in London, Len Deighton served in the RAF before graduating from the Royal College of Art.

He is now the author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. He divides his time between Jersey and California.


‘Immense skill... a stylish and stimulating performance’ The Times

‘The richness, the sardonic humour, the wheeling and dealing world of the films with its parties, its highly coloured characters... The power of the book is undoubted’ The Standard

‘The film industrry is in many ways the ideal subject for Mr Deighton’s talents’ Times Literary Supplement

‘Deighton’s greatest novel, and I haven’t forgotten his epic Bomber. If Deighton never puts pen to paper again, his place is secure among the world’s top ten modern novelists.’ Whitefriar
