The Looking-Glass War by John le Carré Explored Part 1

In this episode we take a deep dive into the intricacies of one of John le Carré’s most unjustly overlooked novels – The Looking-Glass War.

I’m joined by critic and author Jeremy Duns. We talk about weird relationships, how the book is a proto-Slow Horses, and get the first ever comparison of le Carré and the band Nirvana?!?

All that and much more in this episode.
