Sir Alec Guinness as George Smiley

Completed Call for the Dead, by John le Carré. This was le Carré’s first novel, published in 1961, and the first of his George Smiley books. Yes, indeed, I pictured Sir Alec Guinness as George Smiley all the way through the book. He fits the character so well. I enjoyed this one very much and was impressed by this first novel. John le Carré is an excellent writer, and I enjoy reading his work. I don’t think of him as a writer tied to a genre. I think of him as an author of quality and a wonderful storyteller.
