9780340993729: Call for the Dead

It was less an interview than an amiable conversation over a walk in the park. George Smiley had been sent to speak to a high-ranking civil servant after an anonymous tip-off that he was a security risk. It was a formality - and the two men liked each other. Why then, did it apparently drive the poor man to despair? And why was he found dead the next day, the victim of an unnecessary suicide? Call for the Dead launched John le Carre's unparalleled career as a novelist, and introduces one of fiction's most famous spies - George Smiley, who is both brilliant and unremarkable.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Call for the Dead

"A finely wrought and compelling admixture of three types of crime writing: the novel of action and excitement that we commonly call a thriller, the spy story, and the detective story."-- P. D. James, from the Foreword

"A subtle and acute story of counter-espionage marked by restraint, indirection, and intelligence."-- The New York Times Book Review

Praise for John Le Carré

"Le Carré is more than just a great storyteller-- he captures the Zeitgeist itself."-- Tom Wolfe

"No other contemporary novelist has more durably enjoyed the twin badges of being both well-read and well-regarded."-- Scott Turow

"He is one of the half-dozen best novelists now working in English."-- Chicago Sun-Times

"Le Carré is one of the best novelists-- of any kind-- we have."-- Vanity Fair

"A brilliant linguistic artist with a keen eye for the exotic and not-so-exotic locale, a crafty, moralizer with an occasional bent for sentiment."-- The Wall Street Journal

About the Author:

John le Carre was born in 1931. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a wide reputation which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. His other novels include The Constant Gardener, Absolute Friends and The Mission Song. A Most Wanted Man is his twentieth novel.
