    Summary

    "Erm." Roach had to think. "Je -- " It seemed to him in that absurd moment that all the French he'd learned spilled out of his head. Still, he had to try. "Je suppose que je connais un peu français?"

    "Not like that you don't," Jim said, but he didn't look too disappointed. In fact, he almost looked happy to be distracted. "You forgot the subjunctive."

    “Grant is a Cassius looking for a Caesar,” Magnus had said. “If he doesn’t find a back to stab soon, the Agency will give his dagger to someone else.” (A Perfect Spy, John le Carré)  

    His Caesar dead, and he himself driven nearly mad by his exile to Statistics, Grant wondered who it was he had really been trying to destroy, Magnus or himself.

    Summary

    “Perhaps it wasn’t Jim,” said Smiley after a long silence. “Perhaps it was someone else who blew the networks. Not Jim.”

    *

    At Freistadt, deep in the soft warm heaven of a girl whose name he had forgotten, Max had been puzzled and angry. The anger had carried him for months, but he wasn’t angry anymore, though the bewilderment lingered.

    “So what you doing here,” he said again, “Jim?”

    Summary

    ‘Fucking hell,’ spat Turner, rolling the words around in his mouth as if to get the full flavour of his own disgust. ‘You lot really are absolutely bloodless, eh? Clinging on to the dregs of British dignity, prostituting yourselves to keep the lie alive for a day longer… Leo was better than the lot of you put together.’

    Summary

    Vuole essere così tanto come Bill Haydon che un po' inizia a imitarlo. I suoi completi grigi diventano grigio-perla e si arricchiscono con dettagli colorati (la cravatta, il fazzoletto nel taschino, le calze – tutto rigorosamente abbinato), la sua camminata si fa più sicura, il suo sorriso più affascinante (o almeno ci prova, ma ha il sospetto di sembrare solo ridicolo la maggior parte delle volte). Un giorno vede Bill arrivare con una sciarpa turchese di seta, legata come se fosse un aviatore, e quel dettaglio gli dà un look da avventuriero. Vorrebbe chiedergli di raccontargli le sue missioni dai Balcani a Madrid durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, ma non vuole passare per uno sciocco ammiratore: se Bill lo tratta come un suo pari – si ripete – deve comportarsi come tale. E crede di trasudare già abbastanza ammirazione dal modo in cui lo ascolta, lo guarda, gli sorride. Quindi, piuttosto, durante il loro caffè, gli domanda dove ha comprato la sciarpa che indossava oggi quando è arrivato, perché gli piace molto.

    Summary

    Peter incontra Bill Haydon per la prima volta due settimane dopo aver preso servizio al Circus. [...] Nel frattempo [...] ha fatto in tempo a sentire parlare di lui da chiunque, ma in particolare da Connie Sachs, che appena l'ha visto mettere piede negli uffici pieni di fumo del Circus, se l'è preso subito in simpatia.

    Summary

    Sente una punta di gelosia, Peter, al pensiero. Pensa al caffè bruciato che bevono assieme, nell'ufficio di Bill, pensa ai consigli che il suo superiore – il suo confidente, il suo modello di vita – gli dà, pensa al suo sorriso che, per quanto caldo e accogliente, non è mai stato così pieno d'amore nei suoi confronti. Pensa anche ai "chiudi la porta" e ai baci in ascensore e alla prima volta che ha visto la casa di Bill e poi la sua camera da letto. Pensa all'imbarazzo di quando si è lasciato sfuggire davanti all'altro che "sei il mio eroe, davvero" e Bill gli ha dato un buffetto sulla guancia e gli ha detto di crescere, ché "sono tutt'altro che un eroe" e c'era una nota un po' amara nella sua voce.
