TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY Co-Screenwriter Peter Straughan joins Larry Mantle of KPCC to talk about the travails and triumphs of adapting John le Carré's classic spy novel. On the KPCC site, there's a podcast of the radio show with Mr. Straughan talking about the complexity of adapting the complicated spy yarn and le Carré's enthusiasm for the project, as well as the tragedy of losing his wife and co-screenwriter, Bridget O'Connor, to cancer right before the film went into production. Great stuff.
