Any fan of John Le Carre here?

The spy who came in from the cold and so on: does anybody remember? I like above all the way he describes with a sort of detached affliction the miseries of his poor protagonists.

Here I am, a huge fan of John Le Carré's obscure world around the Circus. By chance I met with "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" and got hooked immediately. But I don't remember if this happended before or after I watched "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold", one of those rare movies which do not loose when compared to the book (maybe I was a little bit in love with Richard Burton...). Then I started a systematical search for Georg Smiley and his friends. Finally, I got a last glimpse on Control and Smiley in the still more melancholy "The Looking-Glass War". I'm glad someone shares my taste regarding Le Carré. :)

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy was one of my favorite. Unforgettable Smiley at his best and Pridoux, the French teacher, an anticipatedly retired operative who had to give up because of the mole in the circus... Simply delicious, I read it twice. bye

I have heard of John Le Carre. I did read the spy who came in from the cold. It has been a long time since I read this book.

Well, if I'm not wrong it has been written, as pilot book in 1968... long long ago.
