"In this definitive biography Adam Sisman reveals the man behind the bestselling persona. In John le Carre, Sisman shines a spotlight on David Cornwell, an expert at hiding in plain sight. Of course, the pseudonym John le Carre has helped to keep the public at a distance. Sisman probes Cornwell's unusual upbringing, abandoned by his mother at the age of only five and raised by his con man father (when not in prison), and explores his background in British intelligence, as well as his struggle to become a writer, and his personal life. Sisman has benefited from unfettered access to le Carre's private archive, talked to the most important people in his life, and interviewed the man himself at length"
