Q There are many sides to this story Russian, French, American How did you begin unearthing all the pieces and evaluating how to share them SK For the first year, I only had the Russian side I had the notes from the Farewell KGB dossier, as well as notes from interviews with his widow, his son, his colleagues, and his friends Then I went to France and had the chance to add the recollections of Farewell s first handler, Xavier Ameil, and his wife, Claude I did try to get additional information from the DST the French counterintelligence agency and the DGSE French foreign intelligence As I expected, they didn t cooperate The DST head during Farewell s time, Marcel Chalet, then retired, refused to meet me his deputy, Raymond Nart, was still in active service Patrick Ferrant, Farewell s main handler, also refused. Luckily, I was contacted by Eric Raynaud, who wanted to make a movie of my book Bonjour, Farewell and was working on the script We met two years later and I offered him the opportunity to collaborate on a new edition, giving him some leads in France Thus it was Eric who conducted the main investigation from the French side for the second edition There were several reasons for this It was six years after my first try at uncovering information, so Raymond Nart and Patrick Ferrant had retired and were able to reveal And on top of that, a Russian journalist researching a book about espionage looks suspicious Because Eric was French and had plenty of time and flexibility, he was able to convince Marcel Chalet and Jacques Prvost to speak about the case Also he obtained comments about the Farewell cast from Richard Allen, President Reagan s first national security adviser As a result of Eric s work, our book on Farewell s case became much consistent from an international perspective. Q Because Vetrov is viewed as a traitor in Russia, you initially published your book in France rather than your home country The Russian government forbade filming of the screenplay in Moscow, and two Russian actors bowed out of the lead role because of social and political pressure Did you ever consider not publishing the book because of the social taboos SK No I wrote the first version of my book in 1995 to 1996, when many doors, including those inside the KGB, were, if not open, at least not shut in your face My first edition was an accurate reporting of facts, without any political allegations What could they have objected to For the second version, I contacted some people I couldn t get to before or of whose existence I had been unaware I had a long interview with Vladimir Kryuchkov, the former head of the Soviet Union s Foreign Intelligence and later on of the whole KGB Igor Prelin, former operative of internal counterintelligence dealing with Soviet intelligence officers Valery Rechenski, who was Farewell s inmate in prison and so on All these people were much at ease talking about the case the second time around because many of the officials involved had died, and because it looked like pure history My reason for not publishing my book in Russia was ultimately out of consideration for Farewell s family His widow and son helped me a great deal in reconstructing his life, and I didn t want their acquaintances pointing and whispering about them after having read this book In Russia, Farewell is not considered a hero, even if his work objectively helped bring about the end of the Communist regime. Q While conducting background research for his screenplay, Eric Raynaud uncovered new information that was used to expand the book Is there one new detail he came across that you found particularly enlightening SK Eric s information helped give the book a consistent French point of view forced me to modify some of my initial conclusions, which were probably too critical and helped me to better see the international dimensions of the case However, the information that was the most exciting to me was the relationship and conversations between Farewell and Patrick Ferrant That was a huge contribution from Eric s side. Q In your opinion, what makes this account of Agent Farewell the greatest spy story of the 20th century What will stick with readers SK I m convinced that Farewell s aims to destroy the KGB had a much greater impact than even he anticipated The information he handed over to the West completely changed Western countries view of the Soviet Union They thought they could maintain a balance of power with the USSR through peaceful competition But upon learning of the KGB s proficiency in stealing global technological secrets, they realized this wouldn t work Whereas Carter and Nixon were partisans of dtente, President Reagan didn t see things the same way He wanted to defeat Communism, and Farewell gave him one of the most important arguments for this stance But simply, on a human level, Farewell is a fascinating story of an ordinary man who found himself in the right place at the right time and became an actor in making history.
