Publisher Comments:

A new hardcover edition of the book Graham Greene called “the best spy story I have ever read.”
On its publication in 1964, John le Carrés The Spy Who Came in From the Cold forever changed the landscape of spy fiction. Le Carré combined the inside knowledge of his years in British intelligence with the skills of the best novelists to produce a story as taut as it is twisting, unlike any previously experienced, which transports anyone who reads it back to the shadowy years in the early 1960s, when the Berlin Wall went up and the Cold War came to life.

The Spy Who Came in From the Cold was hailed as a classic as soon as it was published, and it remains one today.

About the Author

John le Carré was born in 1931 and lives in Cornwall, England. He is the author of Call for the Dead; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; Smileys People; The Tailor of Panama; The Constant Gardener; and most recently, Absolute Friends.
