Alan on CBS This Morning:
Mission to Paris reviewed in the New York Times.
“The writing in Mission to Paris, sentence after sentence, page after page, is dazzling. If you are a John le Carré fan, this is definitely a novel for you.”
“I am a huge fan of Alan Furst. Furst is the best in the business–the most talented espionage novelist of our generation.”
“Reading Mission to Paris is like sipping a fine Chateau Margaux: Sublime!”
“Alan Furst’s writing reminds me of a swim in perfect water on a perfect day, fluid and exquisite. One wants the feeling to go on forever, the book to never end … Like Graham Greene, Furst creates believable characters caught up, with varying degrees of willingness, in the parade of political life. And because they care, the reader does, too … Furst is one of the finest spy novelists working today, and, from boudoir to the beach, Mission to Paris is perfect summer reading.”
“[Furst] is most at home in Paris, which is why legions of his fans, upon seeing only the title of his latest book, will immediately feel pulses quicken … Furst has been doing this and doing it superbly for a long time now … Long ago Furst made the jump from genre favorite to mainstream bestsellerdom; returning to his signature setting, Paris, he only stands to climb higher.”
“The novel recalls a time when black and white applied to both movies and moral choices. It’s a tale with wide appeal.”
