The Mission Song
Bruno Salvador, known to friends and enemies alike as Salvo, is the ever-innocent, twenty-nine-year-old orphaned love-child of a Catholic Irish missionary and a Congolese headman’s daughter. Educated first at mission school in the East Congolese province of Kivu, and later at a discreet sanctuary for the secret sons of Rome, Salvo is inspired by his mentor Brother Michael to train as a professional interpreter in the minority African languages of which, almost from birth, he has been an obsessive collector.
John le Carré (* 19. Oktober 1931 in Poole, Dorset, Vereinigtes Königreich; eigentlich David John Moore Cornwell) ist ein englischer Schriftsteller. Nachdem er selbst für den britischen Geheimdienst gearbeitet hatte, wurde er seit den 1960er Jahren durch seine Spionageromane bekannt. “HE MISSION SONG is meticulously researched, and the tricks and tactics of being a top interpreter are convincingly rendered. You’re left with the uncomfortable feeling that perhaps politicians, journalists, civil servants and the businessmen really are the lying, amoral bastards portrayed here. Perhaps it isn’t only in le Carré’s world, but in the real world too, that we’re unwise to believe what we are told.” (Independent on Sunday) (127 Rezensionen / 3,8 Sterne), 352 Seiten noch günstig?
