Taibo on le Carré.

In Jacobin magazine, distinguished novelist Paco Ignacio Taibo II writes of his great admiration for the work of John le Carré. Says Taibo, "The grace of le Carré’s style lies not in great anecdotes but in the journey through a human landscape peopled by agents addicted to the love of adrenaline or danger or the dilettantes, civil servants, schemers, and Cold War bureaucrats’ impossibly abstract fidelity and professionalism."
