In 2010, he published "Our Kind of Traitor", a novel that looks at Russian money laundering and its much broader political implications. In the summer of 2010, Writers and Company host Eleanor Wachtel went to see John le Carré at his home outside of Penzance in Cornwall, England. Mr. le Carré was so generous that what you'll hear today is the first of a two-part conversation - a Canadian exclusive. The interview with Mr. Le Carré won a Silver Medal at the New York Festivals.
