A Most Wanted Man  A Turkish heavyweight boxing champion sauntering down a Hamburg street with his mother on his arm can scarcely be blamed for failing to notice that he is being shadowed by a skinny boy in a black coat.


– John Le Carre


This is my first novel by Le Carre and I have mixed feellings so far.

  1. Very true. I imagine that the Turkish heavyweight is very rarely nervous for his own safety. John le Carre is one of those authors I’ve always meant to read but somehow have never made it happen.
