John le Carre

When I was writing The Private Lives of Hertfordshire Writers I had the privilege of interviewing John le Carre’s oldest friend the late Dick Clements who lived in Sarratt. Lovely man. Lovely memories. Le Carre had written a short story about him called The Draper of Watford. In it Le Carre revealed why he put his spy school in Sarratt.

That’s a lovely memory Pamela. I’ve just looked up " The Draper of Watford" and found it on Amazon.

Enjoy! And good luck with the postage !!
