Spy novelist John le Carré passed away Saturday at the age of eighty-nine.
Works such as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and The Honourable Schoolboy brought new acclaim to the genre of espionage thriller — unsurprising, given that their author actually worked in British intelligence.
Le Carré, who died of pneumonia not related to COVID-19, was publishing up until quite recently; his most recent novel, Agent Running in the Field, came out in fall 2019.
