John le Carré: The author's official website

John le Carré interviewed on NPR's All Things Considered

Last week, Robert Siegel, host of All Things Considered, spoke with John le Carré in Bern, Switzerland.

    Le Carré was at the Bellvue Hotel, where a key scene unrolls in le Carré’s latest novel, Our Kind of Traitor. The interview touched on the real life character behind the Russian oligarch featured in the novel, and the real-world back-drop of large-scale money-laundering perpetrated with the active participation of many of the west’s leading banks.
