Silverview by John le Carré Explored Part 3 – Episode 10

In Part three of this four part look at Silverview Matthew Bradford and I continue to discuss John le Carré’s final complete novel. In this third part we explore the plot and espionage in the novel.

We discuss the way betrayal is different in this novel, what’s up with Edward’s creepy obsession with basements, and did le Carré consider Edward a hacker?

Plus we talk about how Silverview is the culmination of le Carré’s love of the fax machine.

All that and much more in this episode.

    Great conversation….particularly, the analysis of le Carre’s love for characters with ‘passion’….as Matthew so ably pointed out, his works are rife with examples of this….congrats.
