I picked up The Tailor of Panama because I had been overwhelmed and bowled over by the awesomeness of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Half Price Books did not have a copy of The Spy Who Came in From the Cold I read TTSS on the plane from Europe and the plot reached out to me and entangled me in its roots I was fitfully half asleep thinking and dreaming of the Spy The Great Game The Mole KARLA Petrov and that is when you know a book is goodThe Tailor of Panama was the exact opposite experience unfortunately The book s protagonist I suppose he s a protagonist is Harry Pendel a sometimes tailor with a shady past British spy Andrew Osnard comes all the way from Whitehall to Panama to personally recruit Harry Pendel to spy for the Brits in light of Panama s upcoming transition to independence I think what I disliked the most about the book was that given that Osnard clearly knows Pendel s a crazed liar that he never even uestions the validity of Pendel s stories Since that s the hinge upon which the novel swings Pendel feeding half baked stories and lies sometimes truths to the Brits and it s not to be believed that Osnard never uestions the material it falls completely flat on its face The novel has some smatterings of bright points when it delves into the inner workings of the British bureaucracy and there were some relatively amusing lines but that was all John le Carr s premise of a mad tailor stitching together truth and lies into something much larger than himself was clever but the execution and his own stitching together of this novel was poor Neither Harry nor Andrew are particuarly interesting characters it s the women Louisa and Marta who actually are able to steal the show if there was a show at all

Between February 2017 and September 2017 I read the entire George Smiley series Having reached the end of the series I was left wondering about John le Carr s life and work and whether to read other books by him and so I read John le Carr The Biography by Adam Sisman in April 2018 John le Carr The Biography convinced me I should probably read everything John le Carr has ever written and so it was I came to The Tailor Of Panama 1996 my first non Smiley JLC book It is very clever and darkly comic Harry Pendel is the titular tailor of Panama ostensibly a uality bespoke tailor whose customers include some of the movers and shakers in Panamanian society Andrew Osnard a Thatcherite intelligence operator interested in getting rich uick than serving his country recognises Pendel s potential as a spy and proceeds to blackmail him into taking the job Sadly Pendel s intelligence is imagined than real and this is the springboard for a complex insightful and meandering plot As always beneath the beautiful descriptions of people places interactions and character there is a darkly compelling narrative that shines a harsh and illuminating light on greed opportunism fear expediency modern geopolitics and stupidity How those in power seek to justify their actions and mistakes and how Britain tries vainly to come to terms with its diminished global role in a post Imperial world Another JLC winner45

    [The Tailor of Panama] E–pub Ç John le Carré I recently watched mark Lawson's BBC4 interview with Le Carre and this book was referenced by the writer as one of his favourites What is interesting in this book is Le Carre's ability to develop an initially comic situation within a few chapters into a story about vanity and greed It demonstrates how a lie develops through the wishes of the intelligence service and media interests into the premise for an invasion The story itself pitches a
