The Tailor of Panama
Inspired in part by Graham Greene's "Our Man in Havana." As in Greene's novel, this one ridicules the tendency of British intelligence services to accept questionable local Panamanian sources provided by Harry Pendel, an ex-convict British expatriate tailor who invents a Saville Row connection and a nonexistent mentor and former partner. He proceeds to invent a conspiracy involving students and fishermen trying to stop corrupt sale of the canal on the eve of the turnover of the canal to Panama around the time of its transfer from US control. A mysterious British intelligence service controlled by a Fleet Street press baron passes the information on to the US which mounts a second invasion of Panama. Le Carre has said he was inspired by his own constant reinventing and reimagining himself.
