Product description

Review

[a] brisk and intriguing biography --Dominic Sandbrook, Evening Standard

very readable...Michael Jago draws on family memories and Bingham s own papers to create an affectionate, and in places poignant account of a serious, conventional and ethical man --Stella Rimmington, The Spectator

very readable...Michael Jago draws on family memories and Bingham s own papers to create an affectionate, and in places poignant account of a serious, conventional and ethical man --Stella Rimmington, The Spectator

Competent and fluent, prone to such smooth sentences as 'The greatest irony is that it was to George Smiley, modelled largely on Bingham, that le Carré owed his success.' --London Review of Books
