When John le Carré is good, he is oh so good. In The Night Manager, he is at his best. Reaffirms le Carré’s status as one of the top spy novelists, ever. A beautifully polished, utterly knowing, and palpitating book. JOHN LE CARRÉ was born in 1931. He was educated at the Universities of Bern and Oxford, taught at Eton College, and served as Second Secretary at the British Embassy in Bonn and British Consul in Hamburg during the Cold War. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a wide reputation, which was consolidated by his trilogy Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy; The Honourable Schoolboy; and Smiley’s People. His recent work includes The Tailor of Panama, The Constant Gardener, and The Mission Song. His new novel, A Most Wanted Man, will be published in autumn 2008
Apparently, John le Carré preferred the recent television adaptation of The Night Manager to his original novel.
The Night Manager is an espionage novel by John le Carré, published in 1993. It is his first post-Cold War novel, detailing an undercover operation to bring down a major international arms dealer. Jonathan Pine, a former British soldier, is the night manager. We first meet him in that capacity at the Hotel Meister Palace in Zurich. He is on duty when the "worst man in the world", Richard Onslow Roper, arrives with his entourage on a cold blizzardy night.
3 5 6 24. 26 27 28 29 31. Letter by. John. It’s been one of the unexpected miracles of my writing life: a novel I had written more than twenty years ago, buried deep in the archive of a major movie company that had bought the rights but never got around to making the movie, suddenly spirited back to life and re-told for our times.
First published in 1993. ONE. On a snow-swept January evening of 1991, Jonathan Pine, the English night manager of the Hotel Meister Palace in Zürich, forsook his office behind the reception desk and, in the grip of feelings he had not known before, took up his position in the lobby as a prelude to extending his hotel's welcome to a distinguished late arrival. And this mildness of manner within a fighter's frame gave him a troubling intensity. You would never during your stay in the hotel confuse him with anybody else: not with Herr Strippli, the creamy-haired front-of-house manager, not with one of Herr Meister's superior young Germans, who strode through the place like gods on their way to stardom somewhere else. As a hotelier Jonathan was complete.
You say 'John le Carré' and people will automatically think of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. How does this differ from that concept of le Carré? Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is about someone on the inside. Smiley is older, and is much more about someone who is on the inside of the Circus. Pine isn’t on the inside; he is a free agent, who is recruited by an agent. The Night Manager doesn’t exist in the post-Cold war universe, it exists much more in the modern world, I think. There is more action. The bad guys don’t have particularly political or national-political affiliations
