Silverview: A Novel
by John le Carré
Yep, it’s true. Even though he died in December 2020, John le Carré (aka David Cornwell) has a new book. It was completed before he died and he gave his blessing to his sons to publish it. Silverview is a house on the edge of the seaside town where the main protagonist, Julian Lawndsley, has retreated to set up a bookshop. Silverview is very le Carré in its slow pace, and reads almost like a languid farewell from the greatest spy novelist of the 20th century.
