An anthology of the world's best literary espionage, selected by a contemporary master of the genre, Alan Furst.Here is an extraordinary collection of work from some of the finest novelists of the twentieth century. Inspired by the politics of tyranny or war, each of these writers chose the base elements of spy fiction-highly evolved spy fiction-as the framework for a literary novel. Thus Alan Furst offers a diverse array of selections that combine raw excitement and intellectual sophistication in an expertly guided tour of the dark world of clandestine conflict.
With the author of Red Gold and other smart thrillers acting as editor, this should be a Furst-class anthology. Selections date back to Joseph Conrad and Maxim Gorky. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information. -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY.
