Foreign Intrigue: The Making And Unmaking Of A Foreign Service Officer
Foreign Intrigue: The Making And Unmaking Of A Foreign Service Officer

An irreverent memoir of the author's two decades as a foreign service officer: rapid rise in the 1950s, impatience with stuffy conventions and abrupt selection out in 1968. Best passage: a hilarious account of Vice President Nixon's visit to Malaya.
