There will be some who want to revisit the hoary debate about the character and quality of Le Carré’s genius. But he remains a great contemporary writer, whose work will always be read and reread.

He thinks internationally but feels domestically. In an upside-down time, he appeals to comprehension rather than instinct. I might as well say it: to read this simmering novel is to come in from the cold.
