Alan Furst Reading from The Spies of Warsaw

Known for capturing Europe in conflict between 1933 and 1941, Alan Furst writes novels that fit into a genre he defines as historical espionage. Listen to Furst read from his latest book, The Spies of Warsaw, a book that Washington Post critic Jonathan Yardley claims as "...entertaining from first page to last" and dubs Furst as "...that rarity, a writer of popular fiction who is also a serious novelist."

The Ransom Center acquired Furst's archive in 2006.
