TALES OF THE FOREIGN SERVICE: LIFE ON THE EDGE

Jack Tucker

ISBN: 978-1-5331-8806-9

“Informed by the author’s obvious knowledge of the Foreign Service,

these stories are engaging…a pleasure to read.”

—Blueink Review

“Compact, vivid writing brings locations from El Salvador, Melbourne,

Washington, Egypt, Santo Domingo, Azerbaijan, Baghdad, Riyadh and

the old Soviet Union to life…native populations, eccentric drifters, entre-

preneurs and Foreign Service workers meet on a face-to-face level. Fans

of travel adventure, the novels of Graham Greene and contemporary

world events will find Tales of the Foreign Service well worth their time.”

—Foreward Reviews

“…colorful descriptions of faraway lands as seen through the lens of

an American diplomat. … In taut prose, he describes his colleagues,

their inner worlds, their torments and their domestic strife to reveal the

layered complexity of their lives…including women whose self-contra-

dictions and persuasive magnetism exercised a magical yet dangerous

allure. … A finely wrought compilation.”

—Kirkus Review
