The best new book I’ve read about the Middle East in many years is THE GOOD SPY: The Life and Death of Robert Ames. It’s by Kai Bird, who won the Pulitzer for his biography of Robert Oppenheimer. I’m going to chat with Kai about his new book, about writing, and about the Middle East here over the coming weeks. You can ask him a question too.
We’re using a great new platform called ReplyAll to do this conversation. It works like a radio show except that it develops over time as “the cast” responds to each other. Like a radio show, you can also go to ReplyAll to send us a question. We’ll respond right here in the conversation.
