Time to re-open the master file on yesterday's spy...This new reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arld Schwartzman, and a brand new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.
Born in London, Len Deighton served in the RAF before graduating from the Royal College of Art (which recently elected him a Senior Fellow). While in New York City working as a magazine illustrator he began writing his first novel, The Ipcress File, which was published in 1962. He is now the author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. At present living in Europe, he has, over the years, lived with his family in ten different countries from Austria to Portugal.
