Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy by John Le Carre
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

barkercreek, January 2, 2013

I can't believe I've waited so long to read John Le Carre. This is so complex it requires at least two readings. It's wonderful.

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
Rules of Civility

They drank bathtub gin, they dressed like flappers and went to speakeasies. Prohibition was over, but the excesses of golden boys and girls continued.

This journey to 1938 New York is narrated by a character who is transported after seeing an exhibition photograph of the man who typified that era for her.

This book provides a time-travel experience for the reader who wants to be there, not just visit. It is a trip through the strata of depression-era New York which will leave you with your own memories of 1938.
