"The movement of the triangle is an interesting idea: that most art appeals to most people, but this is of necessity of low popular appeal, whereas higher art, created by a few can only be appreciated by the cognoscenti. It feels a bit emperor's new clothes, but I think an idea of a constant striving for excellence is a good idea (clearly!), but without communication it's meaningless." Mar 26, 2014 08:28AM

Colour, jazz, bravery, love and light feature in this book. On the face of it this is a spy story, but the spies simply manipulate ordinary people who are driven by passions: the Russian scientist with secrets to impart, his ex lover who is the go be ...more

The Russia House by John le Carré
"In my reading, this book was all about the challenges, perils and rewards (if any, in this case) of nuclear disarmament. It's a world-weary view of the subject, though, especially in le Carre's take on experts. From a conversation between Barley,..." Read more of this review »
