John le Carré Biography

David John Moore Cornwell famed as John le Carre was a popular British author of espionage novels who worked for both the Security Service (MI5) and the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) during the 1950s and 1960s. His first two novels, Call for the Dead (1961) and A Murder of Quality (1962), are mystery fiction. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1963), became an international best-seller and remains one of his best-known works; following its publication, he left MI6 to become a full-time writer. His books include The Looking Glass War (1965), Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (1974), Smiley's People (1979), The Little Drummer Girl (1983), The Night Manager (1993), The Tailor of Panama (1996), The Constant Gardener (2001), A Most Wanted Man (2008) and Our Kind of Traitor (2010), all of which have been adapted for film or television. Most of his books are spy stories set during the Cold War (1945-1991) and portray British Intelligence agents as unheroic political functionaries aware of the moral ambiguity of their work and engaged more in psychological than physical drama. He records a number of incidents from his period as a diplomat in his autobiographical work, "The Pigeon Tunnel. Stories from My Life" (2016), which include escorting six visiting German parliamentarians to a London brothel and translating at a meeting between a senior German politician and Harold Macmillan. In the year 2019, he wrote, "I think my own ties to England were hugely loosened over the last few years. And it’s a kind of liberation if a sad kind."
