This success allowed him to leave MI6 to become a full-time author. His novels which have been adapted for film or television include ''The Looking Glass War'' (1965), ''Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'' (1974), ''Smiley's People'' (1979), ''The Little Drummer Girl'' (1983), ''The Night Manager'' (1993), ''The Tailor of Panama'' (1996), ''The Constant Gardener'' (2001), ''A Most Wanted Man'' (2008), and ''Our Kind of Traitor'' (2010).
