Excerpt of the Day

by evanmcmurry

From the Times review of A Spy Among Friends:

“St. John Philby, Elliott later wrote, ‘left at teatime, had a nap, made a pass at the wife of a member of the embassy staff in a nightclub, had a heart attack and died.’ His last words were, ‘God, I’m bored.’”

That’s an entire le Carré novel in one graph.
