In Part Two of this deep dive into Call for the Dead I welcome back guest Bee to discuss John le Carré’s first novel. We continue to get lots of hot takes on the novel from someone who has done a very close reading of le Carré’s work, but especially Call for the Dead.
We discuss how le Carrê views espionage versus police work, Smiley’s masculinity, and just what is really going on between Smiley and Frey.
Plus we decide whether Guillam is a fool and how interconnected all of le Carré’s characters are. All that and much more in this episode.
