Full red cloth. xiii, 291 pp. Fine condition. The reality of espionage isn't easily detangled from its mythology, and somewhere at the uneasy confluence of these dimensions is the fiction of John le Carre. A former British intelligence officer, le Carre has captured the shadows and textures of the covert world with a sure eye for its nuances and a deep appreciation of the human factor. Hoffman, a former CSIS intelligence officer, offers a unique perspective on le Carre's work.
