More Information
Len Deighton was born in London on 18th February 1929, his parents worked in service and his education was greatly impeded by the war. He did his National Service in the RAF before going to Art College. He worked doing illustration for papers etc until, whilst still freelancing, his first novel was published the now legendary Ipcress File. The character Harry Palmer was an immediate success with subsequent outings becoming international bestsellers. The character was immortalised on screen by Michael Cain in a series of classic films. The authors output continued, though sadly the Palmer character was dropped, with aplomb and Deighton become one of the most successful spy/thriller writers in the world.
