Furst's tale of an Italian antifascist journalist in the days immediately before WWII is exquisitely written but a bit too nuanced and subtly plotted for me. Perhaps I've been corrupted by the absurd narratives and pulp-heavy prose of most thrillers these days. The protagonist Carlo is too much of an enigma; he is idealistic and principled, but cold and passionless at the same time. Admirable, but not my cup of tea.
