Furst in War ...Furst in peace, Furst in the "M" for Mystery Bookstore writing workshop.
It's not often that you see a photo with Alan Furst and me drinking wine, but here is one:
It's stolen from Cara Black's web site, and as discerning observers will note, also features Jonnie Jacobs, the Ugly Town Boys (Tom Fassbender & Jim Pascoe), Jeffery Deaver, Rhys Bowen and if you look carefully, Ed Kaufman, the owner of the store.
It was taken by Cara at the instructors' dinner after the workshop and you can tell it was more than a few years ago because Alan's hair has since turned the same color as mine!
I vividly remember Alan telling us a joke involving some men and a barrel, but I shan't repeat it here ...
