What are you reading these days? I’m just starting The Pigeon Tunnel, John Le Carre’s memoir. My co-host on The Agency Podcast, Candy Minx, is reading it as well and we’ll be discussing it on the podcast once we’re both finished. Perhaps you’d like to read it along with us and join the discussion?
When I was a teenager, my dad loved Le Carre’s cold war spy novels. I recall trying to read one unsuccessfully at the time. I found his slow pace difficult to handle. I got tangled up in the book, decided I was bored and moved on. It wasn’t until 3 decades later that I was able to submerge myself into the fascinating worlds he created.
I’m looking forward to reading this book because the author did in fact work for British Intelligence during the Cold War. What stories he must have to tell!
