John le Carré

Via MetaFilter here's an interview with John le Carré.

It's nice and all, but weak in comparison to this enormously entertaining CBC interview I heard last night. Some of the same ground is gone over, but better, deeper, more interesting, funnier. Writers & Company is a fine show and may be found here. The trousers of Rudolf Hess make a welcome appearance. Part two next week.

Just read the shorter.

(And what I mean by that is "I just finished reading a shorter version." Not "Poo on this, go here instead.")

The political message is obviously more important than finding out who the guy is, but the CBC interview gets much more into the art of the books and the milieu that creates the two particular kinds of liars that are spies and novelists. A really good listen.
