#NextRead – Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carre

Although I am only about a third of the way through the gripping How To Be A Liberal by Ian Dunt, I shall be setting this aside for the weekend and instead focusing on the first of the #LBC3Reads picks for 2021.

This is also the first of our EXTREME Comfort Reads theme for 2021.

We are a week in.

I feel like this was a wise theme choice.

George Smiley, who is a troubled man of infinite compassion, is also a single-mindedly ruthless adversary as a spy.

The scene which he enters is a Cold War landscape of moles and lamplighters, scalp-hunters and pavement artists, where men are turned, burned or bought for stock. Smiley’s mission is to catch a Moscow Centre mole burrowed thirty years deep into the Circus itself.


We’ll meeting meeting to discuss this book via zoom on the 16th of January at 12:30pm.

Happy reading!
