Janet I loved that book. Second only to the Perfect Spy. So glad you're reading it right now. I'm looking forward to senility so I can reread LeCarre as if I'd never read him before.

Okay, that made me laugh! But yes, I'm really enjoying this so far. I'm trying to space out reading the Smiley books so they'll last a bit longer.
