Our John le Carre set includes The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

The Spy Who Came in from the Cold
In 1963, a bored British intelligence officer in communist East Germany finished work on a book that would not only re-invent the spy novel, but would change the face of the modern thriller. This is the first illustrated edition of John Le Carré's masterpiece The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, his nerve-shattering account of deception upon deception at the height of the Cold War, and a man caught in a game between East and West where the only rule is to win … no matter the cost.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
In Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Carre perfectly evokes the Cold War, a conflict that has a language all of its own: in the jargon of espionage we encounter ‘scalphunters’ and ‘pavement artists’, ‘firemen’ and ‘lamplighters’, as loyalties shift and the rivalry intensifies between the Circus and its counterpart in Washington.

He taught at Eton from 1956 to 1958 and was a member of the British Foreign Service from 1959 to 1964, serving first as Second Secretary in the British Embassy in Bonn and subsequently as Political Consul in Hamburg. He started writing novels in 1961, and since then has published twenty-one titles.
