One of the most intriguing real-life spy stories of the last decade is the case of CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose cover was blown in a Washington Post article as retribution for an op-ed piece her husband wrote that refuted the Bush administration’s claims on Iraq. Plame’s career with the CIA ended in turmoil, yet now the betrayed spy has returned with a new career—as a spy novelist, naturally. Her first novel, Blowback, follows a Plame-esque operative, and the true-to-life details add to the thrills. This week, Plame appears in conversation with author and KGO radio host Brian Copeland, discussing her new novel on Friday, July 25, at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera. 7pm. 415.927.0960.
