Real Short Re-Cap: The Company We Keep

The Company We Keep: A Husband-and-Wife True-Life Spy Story by Robert Baer and Dayna Baer

I adore husband-and-wife dual memoirs. When I discovered All’s Fair: Love, War, and Running for President by Mary Matalin and James Carville many years ago, there was some seriously blissful reading happening.

And here, we got spying going on, so what’s not to like?

Actually, this is the kind of book that could look promising as all heck and then crash and burn.

But it didn’t happen. (You were worried there for a minute, though, weren’t you?)

The authors both have engaging writing styles, plus a great story, so this thing has the power to keep a person reading straight through to page 143 before getting up from her chair to get more coffee. (true story)

  1. Kim — This is funny. Halfway through the 2nd sentence of your comment, I was getting all excited (another one!) but then you saved me from a boring read. Agreed — it's a tricky structure.

    The Carville/Matalin book is one I have always meant to get to. I have always looked at that couple and wondered what made them click.

  3. Pam — The Carville/Matalin book is pretty fascinating. I'm a sucker for a good how-we-fell-in-love story, and with presidential campaigns as the backdrop — I just don't think it could get any better than that.
