The Tailor of Panama, Paperback / softback Book

The Tailor of Panama Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

'A work of rare brilliance' The TimesCharmer, fabulist and tailor to Panama's rich and powerful, Harry Pendel loves to tell stories.

But when the British spy Andrew Osnard - a man of large appetites, for women, information and above all money - walks into his shop, Harry's fantastical inventions take on a life of their own.

Soon he finds himself out of his depth in an international game he can never hope to win. Le Carre's savage satire on the espionage trade is set in a corrupt universe without heroes or honour, where the innocent are collateral damage and treachery plays out as tragic farce. 'A tour de force in which almost every convention of the classic spy novel is violated' The New York Times Book Review
