The Looking-Glass War by John le Carré Explored Part 2

Find Part One Here.

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

I’m again joined by critic and author Jeremy Duns. We talk class and Britain’s role in the world, how the book could be adapted for television, and Jeff’s tin hatted theory connecting this novel to The Night Manager1?!

All that and much more in this episode.
