SynopsisJohn le Carré is one of the most important yet underestimated writers of our time. He is radical, angry, analytic, and intelligent. For more than 50 years he has been a dedicated author and a pugnacious witness of contemporary events. His ‘63 debut bestseller "The Spy Who Came In From the Cold" is a highly ambitious literary work and much more than a novel. Instead it qualifies as a historical document about the Cold War. But the iron curtain has long fallen and le Carré has moved on to new grounds. His latest works have succeeded in critically debating modern day world issues such as globalisation and the resulting new scourge of terrorism. King of Spies presents the viewer with an account of le Carré’s past and present, and offers a delightful insight into the mind of a brilliant.
