Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John le Carre

A great spy novel, in which the unglamorous George Smiley identifies the Russian mole “Gerald” within British intelligence. Lots of flashbacks and vivid characters. It’s also the first part of a trilogy. I kept seeing and hearing the characters from the terrific mini-series that starred Alec Guinness as Smiley.  (3/18/10)
