Evan Galbraith represented America in Paris for four years during Reagan's administration. He paints a vivid picture of the life of an American ambassador in the grand and glamorous city of Paris. Notwithstanding his popularity as a host (he opened up the U.S. embassy to more than 75,000 guests at over 500 events during his stay,) Galbraith was often controversial. On one occasion, he refused to board France's ultramodern train with Transportation Minister Charles Fiterman because he was a Communist Party member. Galbraith was direct and forceful in his defense of such issues as the U.S. intervention in Grenada, American policy in Central America, and Western relations with the Soviets. His story is often amusing when describing his involvement on talk shows, the embassy dinner parties, and meetings with the socialist government's leaders.
