RESPECTED JOURNALISTS ARE TALKING
**From Sasha Polakow-Suransky, Deputy Editor of Foreign Policy magazine:“At a time when vaccines are front page news and a deadly pandemic is raging across the globe. . . .captivating family history and a reminder of how public health campaigns are still inextricably intertwined with politics. . . .illustrates how inoculating vulnerable people against a killer virus can be a tool of soft power that builds diplomatic goodwill. . . .”

**From Adam Roberts, Midwest Correspondent at The Economist, former Bureau Chief Johannesburg and Delhi:“a closely observed and revealing memoir. . .affectionate detail. . . historically important. . .most remarkable when it recounts living in tropical, isolated and unfortunate Equatorial Guinea. . .sympathetic, vividly told and useful record of an unusually sombre moment in West African history.”

**From Pamela Alexander, Pulitzer Prize-nominated author:“Bloeser’s story reads like a political thriller, women’s history, and African adventure rolled into one. . . . Riveting.”
