i spy with my little eye

Blowing My Cover: My Life as a CIA Spy by Lindsay Moran 2005 (295 pgs)

A humorous recounting of Moran’s experience joining the CIA. It’s not so much a “fish out of water” tale as it is a “fish thrown in the deep end of a lake with 100-pound backpack and told to swim for shore.” With sly observation and an appreciation of the absurd, Moran relates what it’s actually like to interview for the CIA and train to become a spy. From a stern psychologist who convinces her she’s a sexual deviant to insanely realistic POW training, every step along the way has her simultaneously questioning what she’s doing with her life and strengthening her resolve.
