TALES OF THE FOREIGN SERVICE: LIFE ON THE EDGE
“Informed by the author’s obvious knowledge of the Foreign Service,
these stories are engaging…a pleasure to read.”
“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.”
“…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.”
