The Spies of Warsaw - Alan Furst

The Spies Of Warsaw (Random House, $15) is set in 1931 when the Nazi menace is mounting, but Hitler’s intentions are still unclear. French diplomats, German SS officers, and Russian agents angle for strategic advantage; and an engineer from a panzer factory is led down the slippery slope of betrayal. The professional spies are smooth and calculated operators, displaying dignified and noble bearing; but while patriotism is one motivation for espionage, self-interest and self-preservation prove more compelling. Alan Furst describes his characters’ most subtle dimensions and hooks the reader with their moral duplicity from the very first pages.

In The Open Road: The Global Journey Of The Fourteenth Dalai Lama (Vintage, $14.95) Pico Iyer blends spiritual teaching with a personal account of the character of the man Tenzin Gyatso. Iyer charts how political circumstances and the Dalai Lama’s own intellectual and scientific curiosity have caused him to lead once-isolated Tibet in a direction unanticipated when Gyatso was born.
