"Sardonic insights and a lovely pen." Fred Emery, former Executive Editor, The Times, London. "Precht's stories about an American diplomat in the Middle East provide important background about America's present role and challenges in that crucial geography." Burton Gerber, Veteran CIA Officer in Eastern Europe and the Middle East "This is not a striped-pants world. Instead, these [stories] illuminate a grittier side of embassy life with a wry sense of humor and a bit of an edge, not unlike the author himself."
