Le Carre exhibition from Oxford.

Now online are some items from the Bodleian Library exhibition "Tinker, Tailor, Writer, Spy" on the work of John le Carre (aka David Cornwell). The library presented the exhibition in 2011 to mark the move of le Carre's papers to the Bodleian. Exhibits include:

typewritten drafts of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
manuscript page from The Russia House
photo of Alec Guinness and le Carre during the filming of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy
Of related interest: this 1996 program with le Carre and George Plimpton at New York's 92nd Street Y at the time of the release of The Tailor of Panama.
