The Foreign Correspondent

The Foreign Correspondent
by Alan Furst

The story -- a journalist reports on events leading up the World War II, especially the Spanish Civil War -- is just so-so. The ambiance, however, is superb. Most of it takes place in Paris in 1938 and a spring snow, cigarette smoke, cognac, and the food establish a definite sense of place that is most appealing. -- recommended by Rianne S. - Bennett Martin Public Library
