Smiley's People

book | Fiction | 1979
UK → Hodder and Stoughton

‘It’s an emergency, George. You remember Vladimir? George, are you awake? You remember the old General?’

The phone call that dragged George Smiley, acting Chief of the Circus, from his bed was a plea to return to active service. But only to bury the case, not to solve it.

 

Smiley's People was adapted by BBC TV in 1982 starring Alec Guinness as George Smiley.

It is an achievement of subtlety and power of which few novelists would be capable. Standing by itself it is the best single thing le Carré has done
Financial Times

An enormously skilled and satisfying work
