Overview
Grace Kennan Warnecke, daughter of famed U.S. diplomat and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian George F. Kennan, offers a revealing memoir of her father and her own life lived through the tumultuous Cold War era and beyond. She keenly recounts her youth spent in the Soviet Union, Norway, Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Portugal. Fluent in five languages by the age of eleven when she attended school in Moscow, she would later return to the United States, attended Radcliffe, married and divorced newspaper heir Charles K. McClatchy and then architect John Carl Warnecke. After working for five years in Ukraine, an epiphany led her to forge her own career as a photographer, television producer, and owner of a consulting firm. She has guided Ted Kennedy and his family in Russia, met Andrei Sakharov with Joan Baez, and accompanied dancer Jacques d'Amboise to audition children in the coldest reaches of the globe for the National Dance Institute.
Daughter of the Cold War is Grace Kennan Warnecke's heartfelt story of a lifelong personal and professional relationship with Russia, her escape from the shadow cast by her famous father and starting her own policy career, and her whirlwind journey of survival, risk, and discovery through disparate countries, events, and major personalities.
