John Le Carré recommends
thumb
The Year Is '42 (2004)
Nella Bielski
"Wholly original and moving... Portrays history as the spymaster of us all."
thumb
Dispatches (1977)
Michael Herr
"The best book I have ever read on men and war in our time."
thumb
The Game of X (1965)
Robert Sheckley
"Combines ironic wit with suspense to remarkable effect."
thumb
A Fragment of Fear (1965)
John Bingham
"This novel comprises some of the best work of an extremely gifted and perhaps under-regarded British crime novelist.... What gave John Bingham his magic was something we look for in every writer, too often in vain: an absolute command of the internal landscape of his characters, acutely observed by a humane but wonderfully corrosive eye."
