You’ll be hearing excerpts of two interviews Terry Gross recorded with spy novelist John LeCarre, from 1989 (during the waning days of the Cold War, two years before the fall of the Soviet Union) and from 2017. Both interviews look back on his work as a spy for British Intelligence, before he began his career as a writer. LeCarre died on Saturday, of pneumonia. He was 89.
