The LIttle Drummer Girl, by John le Carre

Staff Pick

Far removed from the world of George Smiley and British intelligence is The Little Drummer Girl, an ambitious and morally complex standalone novel from John le Carré. His protagonist is Charlie, a young actress whose talent and passionate political bent draws the attention of a cabal of Israeli spies. They coerce her into taking a role in “the theater of the real” in order to catch a bomber, and she’s quickly immersed in a world of danger and consummate paranoia. As she dives deeper into her role, Charlie’s sympathies and motivations begin to bleed together in thrilling, painful fashion. Le Carré tackles intensely political subject matter with nuance, and he boldly embraces the humanity and ugliness in each of his characters.
