Smiley vs 007: Could they work together?
How would George Smiley (of John le Carre) and James Bond (Ian Flemming) work together? Both are anti-heroes and have love for their country (or do they?) but could they see eye-to-eye? How might their live styles conflict and would they be able to take orders from one another? le Carre has spoken about Bond and Smiley but do you think there’s a deeper connection? I think an article on the two would bring some answers to this question plus expose some of the deeper character traits these two have.
