  • The Polish Officer by Alan Furst
    The Polish Officer (English, Paperback) Alan Furst

    The Research of Alan Furst's Novels Alan Furst describes the area of his interest as ?near history.? His novels are set between 1933-the date of Adolf Hitler's ascent, with the first Stalinist purges in Moscow coming a year later-to 1945, which saw the end of the war in Europe. The history of this period is well documented. Furst uses books by journalists of the time, personal memoirs-some privately published-autobiographies (many of the prominent individuals of the period wrote them), war and political histories, and characteristic novels written during those years. ?But,? he says, ?there is a lot more?-for example, period newsreels, magazines, and newspapers, as well as films and music, especially swing and jazz. ?I buy old books,? Furst says, ?and old maps, and I once bought, while living in Paris, the photo archive of a French stock house that served the newspapers of Paris during the Occupation, all the prints marked as cleared by the German censorship.? In addition, Furst uses intelligence histories of the time, many of them by British writers. Alan Furst has lived for long periods in Paris and in the south of France. ?In Europe,? he says, ?the past is still available. I remember a blue neon sign, in the eleventh arrondissement in Paris, that had possibly been there since the 1930s.? He recalls that on the French holiday le jour des morts (All Saints' Day, November 1) it is customary for Parisians to go to the Père Lachaise Cemetery. ?Before the collapse of Polish communism, the Polish émigrés used to gather at the tomb of Maria Walewska. They would burn rows of votive candles and play Chopin on a portable stereo. It was always raining on that day, and a dozen or so Poles would stand there, under black umbrellas, with the music playing, as a kind of silent protest against the communist regime. The spirit of this action was history alive-as though the entire past of that country, conquered again and again, was being brought back to life.? The heroes of Alan Furst's novels include a Bulgarian defector from the Soviet intelligence service, a foreign correspondent for Pravda, a Polish cartographer who works for the army general staff, a French producer of gangster films, and a Hungarian émigré who works with a diplomat at the Hungarian legation in Paris. ?These are characters in novels,? Furst says, ?but people like them existed; people like them were courageous people with ordinary lives and, when the moment came, they acted with bravery and determination. I simply make it possible for them to tell their stories.?

  • Night Soldiers by Alan Furst
    Night Soldiers (English, Paperback) Alan Furst

    Bulgaria, 1934. A young man is murdered by the local fascists. His brother, Khristo Stoianev, is recruited into the NKVD, the Soviet secret intelligence service, and sent to Spain to serve in its civil war. Warned that he is about to become a victim of Stalin's purges, Khristo flees to Paris. Night Soldiers masterfully re-creates the European world of 1934?45: the struggle between Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia for Eastern Europe, the last desperate gaiety of the beau monde in 1937 Paris, and guerrilla operations with the French underground in 1944. Night Soldiers is a scrupulously researched panoramic novel, a work on a grand scale.
