When author John le Carré died in December 2020, I was selfishly sad. He was a favorite and a regular visitor in my life. Every few years, he arrived with a new novel, and I consumed the book immediately. When he passed, there was not a published le Carré work I had not read. I experienced a sense of loss: There would be no more visits from this exquisite writer and elegant storyteller. When you come to the end of an author’s oeuvre, you reach a lonely spot.
