LEN DEIGHTON was born in London in 1929. He worked as a railway clerk before doing his National Service in the RAF as a photographer attached to the Special Investigation Branch.
After his discharge in 1949, he went to art school - first to the St Martin's School of Art, and then to the Royal College of Art on a scholarship. It was while working as a waiter in the
evenings that he developed an interest in cookery - a subject he was later to make his own in an animated strip forthe Observer
and in two cookery books. He
worked for a while as an illustrator in New York and as art director of an advertising agency in London.
Deciding it was time to settle down, Deighton moved to the Dordogne where he started work on his first book, The Ipcress File.
Published in 1962, the
bok was an immediate and spectacular success. Since then has written many books of fiction and non-fiction - including spy stories and highly researched war novels and histories - all of which
have appeared to international acclaim.
