MAMista Summary

MAMista by Len Deighton

'A superb novel ... you will be hooked from the first chapter and enjoy every line' Sunday Express

Deep in the South American jungle the MAMista Marxist revolutionaries are fighting a hopeless, protracted war against a dictator - while the CIA see an opportunity. Amid the turmoil, three very different people - a doctor, a young firebrand and an educated revolutionary - find themselves thrown together and trapped at the heart of a battle where the enemy is uncertain, and there can be no winners. Len Deighton's first post-Cold War novel is a chilling and compelling story of revolution and betrayal.

'Moral ambiguity used to be called Greeneland. Since Graham Greene's death, at least part of it ought to be renamed Deightonsville' Time Magazine

MAMista Reviews

Deighton's longest, most complex and passionate novel in years: an epic tale, set in a South American jungle, of good men and women crushed beneath the heel of Realpolitik. * Kirkus Review *
You will be hooked from the first chapter and enjoy every line ... The Berlin Wall may have tumbled, destroying overnight a whole spy cottage industry, but as the dust settles Len Deighton rises like the phoenix ... a superb novel. -- Bryan Forbes * Sunday Express *
Moral ambiguity used to be called Greeneland. Since Graham Greene's death, that territory is open for conquest. At least part of it ought to be renamed Deightonsville. * TIME *

About Len Deighton

Len Deighton was born in 1929 in London. He did his national service in the RAF, went to the Royal College of Art and designed many book jackets, including the original UK edition of Jack Kerouac's On the Road. The enormous success of his first spy novel, The IPCRESS File (1962), was repeated in a remarkable sequence of books over the following decades. These varied from historical fiction (Bomber, perhaps his greatest novel) to dystopian alternative fiction (SS-GB) and a number of brilliant non-fiction books on the Second World War (Fighter, Blitzkrieg and Blood, Tears and Folly).

His spy novels chart the twists and turns of Britain and the Cold War in ways which now give them a unique flavour. They preserve a world in which Europe contains many dictatorships, in which the personal can be ruined by the ideological and where the horrors of the Second World War are buried under only a very thin layer of soil. Deighton's fascination with technology, his sense of humour and his brilliant evocation of time and place make him one of the key British espionage writers, alongside John Buchan, Eric Ambler, Ian Fleming and John Le Carre.
