Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the City for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town. But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian’s evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish émigré living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian’s family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise.

When a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea . . .

Silverview is the mesmerising story of an encounter between innocence and experience and between public duty and private morals. In this last complete masterwork from the greatest chronicler of our age, John le Carré asks what you owe to your country when you no longer recognise it.



‘I shook all the dates in my head like whitebait in a fish basket and hoped for the best.’ – A.J.P. Taylor

When was George Bernard Shaw introduced to sexuality? Did Rome really fall in 410 AD? What caused Andrew O’Hagan to decide to hate football for life? Which day in the life of Samuel Pepys is the most memorable? How astrologically auspicious was the date of the LRB’s founding? For whom did the events of 4 June 1989 change everything?

A new year means a new LRB Diary with a brand new set of timely excerpts from the archive, seasonal artworks by Jon McNaught, and useful pages including, for the first time ever, the LRB guide to proofing marks! Last year’s was a sell-out, even though Covid made diarising anything impossible, so for 2022, the first year of the rest of our lives, we say – don’t delay!

The diary measures 15.5 cm (6 inches) wide x 21.5 cm (8 inches) high. It also has a ribbon and back internal pocket.
