Iowa City Public Library, Rm D

October Book Club is scheduled for October 17th at Iowa City Public Library in Room D. The book will be Dark Star by the late Alan Furst. This is an extraordinary World War II spy thriller. If you appreciate the deeply moral philosophical tone of Graham Greene's finest spy novels or the exciting atmospheric novels of Eric Ambler, you will like this book. When I first read this masterpiece in the early '90s I'd think I was reading my favorite spy novel, then I'd think I was reading the best World War II novel I knew, and finally I'd notice what a great Jewish novel this was! Furst has done his homework and his description of the German invasion of Poland and of Kristallnacht are powerfully written.  

Join us for October's Book Club on the 17th at the Public Library.
