Thanks for Listening: High Adventures in Journalism and Diplomacy
By Patricia Gates Lynch
A remarkable memoir of one woman's adventures as a World War II military wife, a postwar observer of day to day developments at NATO and SHAPE in Paris, and as a nascent radio host in suburban Washington, DC. The author's career continued to develop, as a co-host of the Voice of America Breakfast Show, and as radio coach to First Lady Patricia Nixon. Ms. Lynch's years of service to her country culminated with an ambassadorship to Madagascar and the Comoros under President Ronald Reagan.
