We talk with one of the foremost collectors of John le Carré novels, Steven Ritterman, whose collection of pristine le Carré editions numbers over 300 items. We learn about the Haycroft-Queen list, rare signed editions, and Steve’s undercover mission to meet le Carré himself.

All that plus talk on champagne toasts with Otto Penzler, meeting Eric Ambler, literal juggling balls, and a little Silverview talk from a couple of le Carré collectors.
