Description

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 Carre’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.’An uproarious, darkly poignant and precious book.’ James Naughtie
