A Perfect Spy book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers. John le Carre's classic novels deftly navigate readers through the i 4/5. Well Ive finished Perfect Spy, a biography of Pham Xuan An, who was a double agent during the Vietnam (American) War.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Id definitely say pick this up if you enjoy spy stories or have any interest in Vietnam at all. Having lived in Vietnam, I found the book deeply interesting/5.

In Perfect Spy, Larry Berman, who An considered his official American biographer, chronicles the extraordinary life of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating spies.

Book Of A Lifetime: A Perfect Spy, By John le Carré I first read 'A Perfect Spy' about 20 years ago and to read it again was a real treat. Le Carré's world leaps out of the pages: the games.

With Ray McAnally, Rüdiger Weigang, Alan Howard, Peter Egan. This is the story of Magnus Pym, from his childhood to the end of his career in middle age. As a young man, there is little doubt that his father Rick was the most influential character in his life.

Rick was a raconteur, con man, thief, black marketer and all in all, simply larger than life/10(13). A perfect Spy, however is not another Spy novel, indeed the suspence is not as central to the plot but the character development is truly epic.

Magnus Pym becomes a close relation throughout the narrative, all the good, bad, ugly, and even sometimes boring. A Perfect Spy is a gripping portrait of a twisted life, and the injury of the life a spy.5/5(5). What other book might you compare A Perfect Spy to and why. This is a better story than Le Carré's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold as an exploration of what it can take to live a double life as a spy, a common theme in his books.

It is still hard to beat Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so I. A Perfect Spy This ebook list for those who looking for to read A Perfect Spy, you can read or download in PDF, ePub or Mobi.

Some time after “A Perfect Spy” came out, inPhilip Roth remarked that it was “the best English novel since the war.” So that was le Carré’s greatest book.

Yet many were puzzled. The perfect spy in this bitter, stately le Carré novel—more character-study than thriller—is Magnus Pym, ish, a senior spymaster for Britain, based in Viennabut now, suddenly, disappeared, after returning to England for the funeral of his old father, Rick.

Where has Pym gone. Is he a traitor on the run, a double-agent. Those are the questions that face Pym's aging mentor, Jack. Despite a few leaks about ''A Perfect Spy'' printed elsewhere, adherence to a literary equivalent of the Official Secrets Act seems appropriate because, whatever else it is, John le Carre's new book is a first-rate espionage novel, perhaps the best of his already impressive oeuvre.

The author has gone to great lengths to create a tense balance. Perfect Spy The Incredible Double Life of Pham Xuan An, Time Magazine Reporter and Vietnamese Communist Agent (Book): Berman, Larry: During the Vietnam War, Time reporter Pham Xuan An befriended everyone who was anyone in Saigon, including American journalists such as David Halberstam and Neil Sheehan, the CIA's William Colby, and the legendary Colonel Edward Lansdale.

A Perfect Spy by John le Carré; 23 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Fiction, Spy stories, Traitors, Detective and mystery stories, Fathers and sons.

Philip Pullman reckons A Perfect Spy is ‘one of the finest novels of the twentieth century’, while Philip Roth said it was ‘the best English novel since the war’. Other Philips also speak highly of it/5(39). In Perfect Spy, Larry Berman, who An considered his official American biographer, chronicles the extraordinary life of one of the twentieth century's most fascinating spies.
