John le Carré
- The Biography
- By: Adam Sisman
- Narrated by: Michael Jayston
- Length: 26 hrs and 34 mins
In this definitive biography - blessed by John le Carré himself - Adam Sisman reveals the man behind the best-selling persona. In John le Carré, Sisman shines a spotlight on David Cornwell, an expert at hiding in plain sight - "born to lying," he wrote in 2002, "bred to it, trained to it by an industry that lies for a living, practiced in it as a novelist."

Would you consider the audio edition of John le Carré to be better than the print version?
I have not tried to read it however Michael Jayston does an incredible job and draws you in.
What other book might you compare John le Carré to, and why?
I have nothing to compare this with at present.
What about Michael Jayston’s performance did you like?
His voice and his delivery, Just great.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Well I am half way through having heard some of the abridged version on BBC Radio 4 which introduced me to this biography. I am gripped!
Any additional comments?
Well worth buying particularly as an example of truth being vastly more interesting as well as stranger than fiction
