Dark Star, by Alan Furst — a music playlist

less than 1 minute read

Here at The Hawaii Project, we love music almost as much as we love books. The experience of reading a great book, combined with appropriate music, can be transporting.

We’re currently reading Dark Star, by Alan Furst. Think Casablanca in pre-WWII Paris and Berlin. With a Russian Jewish spy, trapped in a closing net.

So, we built a soundtrack to go with the book. It’s filled with pre-war classic Jazz, and some of the music Furst himself pointed to as inspirations, including Barber’s classic Adagio for Strings. Enjoy!


You can read more about the book on The Hawaii Project, and see the playlist, and add your own, here: Dark Star.
