In this episode we finish our look at A Small Town in Germany, John le Carré’s fifth novel.
Returning to discuss the book is espionage author James Wolff.
We discuss how his treatment of female characters, whether this is a Agatha Christie novel in disguise and whether this could ever be adapted for television? Plus, what’s up with that epilogue?
All that and more in this episode.
Read James’ writing for the website Crime Reads here. Included is his article “Can contemporary spy novels ever live up to the Cold War classics?”
A quick look at why prosecutions of Nazis after the war fizzled out and how they then came back is here.
