The Black Attaché: Vignettes from a Life (Paperback)
Not in stock at Boswell. Available to order.
The Black Attach is an irresistible blend of history, travelogue, and reflection that takes you on a journey from the childhood in India, where Cheema lived through the partition of India and Pakistan, nearly dying on the last train out of Pakistan during the riots, to her career as an American diplomat stationed in hardship posts around the world.
With honesty and warmth, Cheema describes her childhood memories and events from places like Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Burkina Faso, amongst others where she has lived and worked. This is a remarkable memoir by a remarkable woman, and nothing like anything you've read before.
