“Through the lens of a passionate, complex marriage, Ellen Feldman brings the Cold War back to life. The Unwitting is a wise and irresistible portrait of fascinating people in a tumultuous time.” Roger Straus III, former managing director, Farrar, Straus and Giroux
“A story of love and intrigue during the Cold War, The Unwitting plumbs not only the secrets of spies, but those of the human heart. Moving, witty, and thoroughly intelligent, it is an absorbing and deeply satisfying read.” Kevin Baker, author of The Big Crowd
“Unforgettable…The Unwitting compelled me from the first page and through every unexpected twist and turn. This look into the dark places in human nature cries out to be read, reread, and discussed.” Lynn Cullen, author of the national bestseller Mrs. Poe
