Out of the secret world I once knew I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for the reality.' The Pigeon Tunnel, John le CarrU's memoir and his first work of non-fiction, is a thrilling journey into the worlds of his 'secret sharers' - the men and women who inspired some of his most enthralling novels. From terrifying meetings with Yasser Arafat in war-torn Beirut to brilliantly observed encounters with the great figures of 20th century film, from Stanley Kubrick to Alec Guinness. The reader is swept along not just by the chilling winds of the Cold War or by the author's frightening journeys into places of terrible violence but, most importantly, by the author's inimitable voice. In this astonishing work we see our world, both public and private, through the eyes of one of the world's greatest writers.

John le Carrre brought the every day spy in from the cold. His novels are required reading for any one intrested in the cold war and the people who fought it. Whilst his books should be enough, it's only after reading his biography that you come to understand where his tales came from. His life was filled with spys and other characters that shine in his novels. - Steven (QBD)
