John Irving’s Favorite New Thriller: The Informer

Today in The Daily Beast, bestselling author John Irving says you have to read The Informer. He speaks to Craig Nova about his new espionage novel set in 1930s Berlin—and their long friendship.

Irving writes:

Many years ago, I reviewed Craig Nova’s The Good Son for The New York Times Book Review, which led to a correspondence, and our friendship, which continues to this day. I wrote that the novel “has characters of great, outward bravery and of heartbreaking inner need”; I said that his characters were “as vivid with suffering and with spirit as recurring dreams.” Well, that hasn’t changed, but I might have also noticed—as I do now—that Nova’s characters are not easy to like; yet, in novel after novel, he made the most unlikely characters sympathetic—and, especially lately, he’s often put them on a collision course. Maybe this first and most forcefully got my attention in Tornado Alley but it continues.
