Penguin is delighted to announce that John le Carré will be narrating the audiobook of his highly anticipated new novel, Agent Running in the Field. Published on 17 October 2019, this will be le Carré’s 25th novel.  

Set in London in 2018, it follows a twenty-six-year-old solitary figure who, in a desperate attempt to resist the new political turbulence swirling around him, makes connections that will take him down a very dangerous path. Agent Running in the Field is an exhilarating novel that confronts the division and rage at the heart of our modern world

Samantha Halstead, Editorial Director, Penguin Random House Audio UK says: ‘We’re incredibly excited that John le Carré has narrated his audio edition. His reading is completely sublime, and brings such authenticity to this gripping book - le Carré fans are truly in for a treat!’

le Carré has narrated previous audiobooks of his work, notably A Delicate Truth in 2013 and his memoir The Pigeon Tunnel in 2016.
