Reviews


One of those very rare novels that changes the way you look at the world. Unflinching, highly sophisticated, superb William Boyd


The master storyteller ... has lost none of his cunning A N Wilson


I have re-read The Spy Who Came In From The Cold over and over again since I first encountered it in my teens, just to remind myself how extraordinary a work of fiction can be. Malcolm Gladwell


A topical and terrible story... he can communicate emotion, from sweating fear to despairing love, with terse and compassionate conviction. Above all, he can tell a tale.
