"From his years serving in British Intelligence during the Cold War to a career as a writer that took him from war-torn Cambodia to Beirut on the cusp of the 1982 Israeli invasion to Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, John le Carré has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his highly anticipated memoir, le Carré is as funny as he is incisive, reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels"--Container.

I liked this spy thriller CD. He lived in Germany. It is slower moving than other stories written by the author. Le Carré, John did a great job with the script writing this biography. I like John as an author. He said he was actually a spy in his life during the cold war. According to the biography his scripts are based on facts with the fake names of people and places.

The author provides a number of stories that provide background and inspirations to his stories. Certain people that he meets are expanded into fictional characters. Also amusing are the stories where people assume that as a writer of secret agents he is adept at solving certain situations. Some even assume access to organizational help including references to "his people". The last major section on his father is poignant because the author realizes that while his father has violated the trust of a great many people he had supported him and provided a college education. Although many authors are not adept a reading, in this case it was particularly rewarding to hear the author himself read.
