Books I own by Robert Littell

The Once and Future Spy goodreads

Robert Littell

Deeply, deeply odd book. A spy thriller, I suppose, but it's really a psychological journey full of grotesques, and it's left very ambiguous at the end how much of it is actually true and how much isn't. Worth reading, although you may come away with a sense of frustrated anticlimax at not knowing what the hell is actually true. Unreliable narrators are meant to reveal the unreliable bits at the end; that's the twist.

Also discovered that Littell's son is the Jonathan Littell who wrote terrible sci-fi novelĀ Bad Voltage!
