And Harry Palmer Sends His Regards

Len Deighton, the British author of such acclaimed espionage novels as The IPCRESS File (1962), Funeral in Berlin (1964), and SS-GB (1978), will celebrate his 90th birthday on February 18.

In advance of that occasion, Rob Mallows of The Deighton Dossier has started posting his own thoughts, as well as those of other fans, on what Deighton’s impact has been on readers. He’s launched a special Twitter Moment page, “which captures the regular tweets that have been going up containing snippets from some of his best-known books and reader responses to them …” And, come the 19th, he’ll post a larger tribute on the main Deighton Dossier Web site.
