The naïve and sentimental lover. London, November 2000.
The naïve and sentimental lover. JOHN LE CARRÉ, the pseudonym for David Cornwell, was a member of the British Foreign Service from 1959 to 1964. His third novel, The Spy Who Came In from the Cold, became a worldwide bestseller. The Naïve and Sentimental Lover is widely regarded as the blip in my work, the aberration or, more baldly, the turkey.
Great party, lover, he murmured, with a sudden, loving smile. Got to wear the uniform lover, he insisted. Can’t let down the regiment
Great party, lover, he murmured, with a sudden, loving smile. Bless you, said Cassidy. He could not help wishing all the same that Shamus had worn a dinner jacket. Can’t let down the regiment. Uniform was the deathcoat and a lavishly confected bow tie of found material, a belt, perhaps, from an old black dress of Helen’s. He wore it in silence, musket reversed.
Diamonds surrounded them: hung in giant clusters in the window panes, pricked the orange night sky, were draped in the eyes of lovers and in the brown silk of women’s hair. Cassidy heard nothing but the sounds of love and battle, the whispers of longing couples and the far sharpening of a knife. Vertigo seized him, stronger than Haverdown, stronger than Kensal Rise.
Aldo Cassidy is the naive and sentimental lover. Cassidy, plunged into a whirlpool of recklessness and spontaneity, becomes a man bewildered and agonised as he is torn between two poles of a nature more complex than he had ever imagined.

Le Carré's hero is Aldo Cassidy, "the naïve and sentimental lover," a tycoon caught frantically between two astonishing loves. Trapped with him are Shamus, a wild artist who carouses by day or night, and Helen, the artist's nakedly alluring wife. Who will wind up with whom is only one of the mysteries in a world founded upon spontaneity and feeling. David John Moore Cornwell writes bestselling espionage thrillers under the pseudonym John le Carré. The pseudonym was necessary when he began writing, in the early 1960s, because at that time le Carré held a diplomatic position with the British Foreign Office and was not allowed to publish under his own name. John le Carre was born in 1931 and attended the universities of Bern and Oxford. He taught at Eton and served briefly in British Intelligence during the Cold War. For more than fifty years he has lived by his pen.
