MIDNIGHT IN EUROPE
Matèria: Narrativa en anglès
Alan Furst’s new novel is called Midnight in Europe for good reason. It plunges us into a witching hour: 1938 was the time of the Phoney War, a time when Europe held its breath. Bullets and bombs were yet to fly but, in the smoky backrooms of the continent’s cities, secret operatives were locked in a deadly game of cat and mouse. When Midnight in Europe opens, the Spanish Civil War has already begun. But the rest of Europe clings to the hope that war can be averted; that democracy will win out.
