Toby Barlow talks about love, spies, and witches in 1950s Paris with Leonard Lopate.

Toby Barlow talks about his new novel, Babayaga, about love, spies, and witches in 1950s Paris—and a cop turned into a flea. It follows Will, a young executive at an American ad agency in Paris that’s a front for the CIA. Will doesn’t think he’s a Cold War warrior, he’s just a good-hearted Detroit ad guy who can’t seem to figure out Parisian girls.
