Calling Alan Furst's novels "spy thrillers" is technically accurate but a bit misleading. Demonstrating the virtue of specialization, Furst's fictions take place almost entirely in Europe circa 1938-1941, with the continent heading inexorably toward war.

Indeed, Heaney and Grass now are central to the canon. The 2000 literary laureate, Gao Xingjian, is another splendid choice. And if,... | more...

If it is true that many writers imagine their invented people as stylized projections of themselves, it is nowhere more cleverly exemplified than in John Updike's new book, The Complete Henry Bech. From Bech: A Book (1970) to Beck at Bay (1998) and "His Oeuvre" (1999), Henry Bech has become the object d'artifice in Updike's literary imagination and a perversely comic vision of the possibilities... | more...
