Agent Listening in the Field

Le Carré sets the scene

A passing moment from the novel Agent Running in the Field, John le Carré’s latest. It was published late last year. (I’m of the belief that le Carré, now 88 years old, should be in the running for the Nobel Prize in literature: for his gifts to the English language , for the formidable character George Smiley, and for the unmagical realism of his writing.)
