Spies by Michael Frayn

Spies by Michael Frayn is a coming-of-age novel set in World War II England. The narrator remembers his childhood as he walks through the modern community where he grew up. The narrator's best friend informs him that his mother is a German spy so they must keep an eye on her. Her behavior is strange and eventually leads to a series of revelations. The solution is a little over the top but it is still enjoyable.

This novel received the 2002 Whitbread Novel award.


Is available through Abebooks.
