In a recent interview, Littell said critics at the New York Times and other newspapers had for years branded him as an author of espionage fiction. His own appraisal takes a different tack. What he thought he actually was writing about, he said, was the one subject that had mesmerized him the Cold War ever since he was employed as an editor in the foreign affairs department of Newsweek magazine. And although he has no objection to the rubric as a sales pitch for his books the New York Times even referring to him as the American incarnation of John Le Carre, British master of the international spy thriller Littell said his work goes well beyond the mechanics of cloak-and-dagger storytelling. His subject, he asserted, is as much about ideological conflict as it is about U.S. and Soviet spy-agency tradecraft. He pointed, for example, to his most recent books,The Stalin Epigram (about the poet Osip Mandelstam) and now The Mayakovsky Tapes. In writing these works, he said, what fascinated him was the attitude of artists and intellectuals toward the Bolshevik Revolution and the often brutal attitude of the Bolshevik Revolution toward these same artists and intellectuals. Littell cited his student years at Alfred University as pivotal to his vocation as a professional novelist. When I think of the school, he said, I think of three absolutely inspiring professors: the late Ernest Finch, Melvin Bernstein and Myron Sibley. Finch and Bernstein taught English, Sibley philosophy and religion.

Sir Walter Scott, in his edition of Dryden, has given the following account of him and his vocation. When he does these things he acts in the Person of Christ. A letter of St. However, we usually use “Vocation” to mean a call to the consecrated, religious or priestly life. The solution of this question involves that of the vocation itself. More specifically, in the Orthodox and Catholic Churches, this idea of vocation is especially associated with a divine call to service to the Church and humanity through particular vocational life commitments such as marriage to a particular person, consecration as a religious, ordination to priestly ministry in the Church and even a holy life as a single person.
