Dirty Wars And Polished Silver

The Life and Times of a War Correspondent Turned Ambassatrix




From a former foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, a riveting memoir of life, love, and transformation on the frontlines of conflicts around the world

“I’m happy to report that adventure I found, beyond my wildest imaginings. Glamour, too. And love. But there were other things lurking—danger, death, personal loss—that I did not foresee. Most of all, there was war.”

From a kibbutz in Israel, to Central America where her first husband was murdered, to war-ravaged-Beirut, to “Ambassatrix School” after her marriage to a U.S. diplomat, to South Africa during apartheid, Lynda Schuster’s DIRTY WARS AND POLISHED SILVER is a riveting memoir of a life lived on the frontlines of conflict, by a veteran correspondent for the Wall Street Journal and Latin American bureau chief for the Christian Science Monitor.
