£285.00Price

Granta issue 35 published in 1991 by Penguin. This is an issue that was promoted with author John Le Carre's contribution 'The Unbearable Peace'. It is in very good condition. There is some minor wear to the edges and the inside covers are foxed. There is a granta with compliments slip tucked into the front. This copy is scarce as it is signed by John Le Carre next to his name on the contents page.

 

In 1979, Bill Buford and Pete de Bolla transformed Granta from a student publication to a literary quarterly. Each themed issue of Granta has turned the attention of the world’s best writers on to one aspect of the way we live now. 

 

'The Unbearable Peace' is 66-page journalistic reconstruction of Switzerland’s biggest spy scandal, the case against Brigadier Jean-Louis Jeanmaire, accused of passing military secrets to successive Soviet military attaches posted in Bern. Scarce with the author's signature.
