Description

Link to read more about Six Car Lengths Behind an Elephant: Undercover & Overwhelmed as a CIA Wife and Mother by Lillian McCloy

Pico Iyer, author of The Art of Stillness and Video Night in Kathmandu writes this about the book: “If you’re married to a spy, the always fraught arena of a relationship turns into a positive minefield. What does that all-night absence mean? What can you begin to say to the kids? In Six Car Lengths Behind an Elephant, Lillian McCloy gives us the story of a life spent around secret intelligence that is funny and charming and in every wonderful sense, deeply spooky. This is the story John le Carré keeps out of his gripping bestsellers.”

The public is invited to a book event hosted by Ben Hess of the podcast Story Geometry. Lillian McCloy will be in attendance and her daughters Johanna McCloy (the book's editor) and Kristin McCloy (novelist) will each read from the book. The event will be at The Lodge at Harbor Bay (formerly Waters Edge Lodge).

Books Inc. Alameda will have the book available for purchase there. The book is available in Books Inc locations throughout the SF Bay Area, as well as other bookstores. You can also find it on Amazon or in ebook format.

FAQs

* What are my parking options for the event? There is a small parking lot at the front side of The Lodge. If that lot is full, try the Lodge’s “back” lot which is just past their main entrance on Island Drive. You can also go another half-block and turn right into the Harbor Bay Safeway shopping center parking lot at 867 Island Drive. There is a foot path located to the left of Safeway that will take you to the bay-side entrance of the Lodge. (Or use the sidewalk on Island Drive.) Note that there is no street parking on Island Drive.

* How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Please click "Register" to reserve your spots. You can also contact The Lodge at (510) 748-4300 or email cheryl@aecliving.com to ask any other questions.
