The Naive and Sentimental Lover

John Le Carré
Authors:
John Le Carré

At the age of 38, Aldo Cassidy in the eyes of the world, if not his wife, is a wealthy and good man. He in ingenious and thrusting. He has founded his own business, his inventions have made him the success story of the pram trade. Nevertheless, inwardly the earnest and aspiring merchant yearns for more: to invest his heart with the same success with which once he invested his talents and his money. Touring Somerset in the protective isolation of his splendid Bentley, vaguely searching for a stately home which, in his fantasy, might supply him with the identity of an English country gentleman, he encounters a charming if wayward couple, Helen and Shamus, and falls in love with them both. Suddenly his prayers have been answered.By turns their disciple, patron, lover, Cassidy is swept deliriously, ferociously, and yet somehow always innocently into that bewildering world where feeling is the only justification for action; a world at once creative and destructive. His odyssey takes him through Paris, through the intellectual reaches of north London, and finally to the Alps of the Bernese Oberland. With humour, pain and love, The Sentimental Lover describes the night-walk of a man caught between the two sides of his aspiring nature.

The Russia House

Authors:

It is the third summer of perestroika. Barley Blair, London publisher, receives a smuggled document from Moscow. It contains technical information of overwhelming importance. But is it genuine? Is the author genuine? A plant? A madman?Blair, jazz-loving, drink-marinated, dishevelled, is hardly to the taste of the spymasters, yet he has to be used - sent to the Soviet Union to make contact. Katya, the Moscow intermediary, is beautiful, thoughtful, equally sceptical of all state ideology. Together, as the safe clichés of hostility disintegrate, they may represent the future - an idea that is anathema to the entrenched espionage professionals on both sides. THE RUSSIA HOUSE: a spy story, a love story, and a fable for our time.

A Murder of Quality

John Le Carré
Authors:
John Le Carré

George Smiley was simply doing a favour for an old friend, Miss Ailsa Brimley, who edited a small religious newspaper. Miss Brimley had received a letter from a worried woman reader: 'I'm not mad. And I know my husband is trying to kill me.' The writer of the letter was one Stella Rode, wife to an assistant master at Carne School, Dorset, and by the time it arrived, she was dead.Carne was an ancient, self-regarding Church foundation, proud of its proper standards of social distinctions. George Smiley went there to listen, take sherry, ask questions and think. And thus uncover, layer upon layer, the complexities, skeletons and hatreds that comprised this little English institution.
