About this title

Synopsis:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, SpyThe Spy Who Came in from the Cold; and The Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carré?s new novel, A Legacy of Spies, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

"I have visited bohemia and got away unscathed."
 
Aldo Cassidy is an entrepreneurial genius. At thirty-nine, he dominates the baby pram market and rewards his success with a custom Bentley. But Aldo?s bourgeois life is upended by a chance encounter with Shamus?a charismatic writer whose first and only novel blazoned across the firmament twenty years earlier. The two develop a passionate friendship that draws Aldo?smitten also with his new friend?s luscious wife?into a life of reckless hedonism that threatens to consume them all.
 
John le Carré?s The Naïve and Sentimental Lover offers a dark and ribald send-up of both middle-class bohemian pretensions that will astonish and delight his many fans.
 
With a foreword by the author.

Product Description:

Aldo Cassidy is the naive and sentimental lover. A successful, judicious man, he is wrenched away from the ordered certainties of his life by a sudden encounter with Shamus, a wild, carousing artist and Helen, his nakedly alluring wife. Cassidy, plunged into a whirlpool of recklessness and spontaneity, becomes a man bewildered and agonised as he is torn between two poles of a nature more complex than he had ever imagined.
