John le Carre Author Biography
John Le Carré is the pen name of David Cornwell. Cornwell was born in Poole,
Dorset (in the South-West of England) in 1931. His father, Ronnie, made
and lost his fortune a number of times due to elaborate confidence tricks and
schemes which landed him in prison on at least one occasion. This, according to
Cornwell, was one of the factors that led to his fascination with secrets.
His father was also the inspiration for the lead character in 'The
Honourable Schoolboy' (1977).
