I’m one of those people who needs to a read a book before I see its movie equivalent. I recently picked up John le Carre’s novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and was instantly hooked. Don’t be afraid if you aren’t a fan of spy novels – the language and characters themselves will captivate you!
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy – by John le Carre
“Marvelous craftsmanship: a stylishness that would do the most celebrated literary novelist proud. Tinker, Tailor is as perfect a spy yarn as one is likely to find — and a great novel on top of it.” – Stephen Carter, NPR
“…what makes le Carre’s spy stories so primally gripping is that, at bottom, they’re not actually about espionage. They’re about secrets and lies and shifting identities — which is to say, they’re a metaphor for our own daily lives.” – John Powers, NPR
