Product description

Review

This is le Carré with a twist, the Old Master developing new techniques for a new age (Raymond Seitz, The Times)

Thoroughly gripping (Sunday Times)

Absolute Friends is vintage John le Carré: complex, often sardonically funny, always galvanically written. (Daily Express)

[Le Carré] has found a worthy enemy, a target for his moral indignation. Moreover he has hit a contemporary tune again. This is an anti-war novel and, very fiercely, an anti-American one. It's written with passion. (Allan Massie, Scotsman)

Truly thrilling (Financial Times)

'The master has not lost his touch . . . one of his most enthralling creations.' (A.N. Wilson, Telegraph)

'A literary master for a generation' (Observer)

Book Description

A wonderful, classic le Carré now reissued in a stunning new package.
