How John le Carre’s Serial Adultery Shaped His Spy Novels

From a Washington Post review by Dan Fesperman headlined “How John le Carre’s serial adultery shaped his spy novels”:

The compact size and suggestive title of Adam Sisman’s new book, “The Secret Life of John le Carré,” might lead you to believe it is a tawdry rush job, thrown together to cash in on prurient curiosity now that its subject — the late David Cornwell, better known as literary spymaster John le Carré — is no longer around to defend himself or threaten to sue.
