Afternoon Reading - Spy Stories
From The Radio Times
\"For decades to come the spy world will continue to be the collective couch where the subconscious of each nation is confessed;\" said John le Carre. And the five short stories by five different authors this week perfectly exemplify his point. Today\'s tale, read by Martin Jarvis is set in the Siege of Paris in 1870, when a naive young boy\'s cowardly mistake carries a devastating psychological price. Tomorrow Stacy Keach reads a story about man\'s fear of and acceptance of death from the perspective of the American Civil War. But it is Thursday\'s tale, read by Alfred Molina and set in contemporary Britain, that packs the most powerful emotional punch. It concerns a British agent who befriends a Russian journalist by chance-they share many beliefs and experiences, but the world of modern espionage has no room for friendship.
