9781501287138: Loose Lips

Loose Lips follows the story of Selena Keller who has just completed a doctorate in Oriental Studies. Living in Manhattan, unemployed, and dismayed by her dull job prospects, on a whim she sends her resume to the CIA. Within weeks she is contacted by a recruiter, who asks her how she would feel about convincing another human being to commit treason. Despite her checkered life history, she passes the background investigation, the polygraph, and a battery of bizarre CIA aptitude tests and begins duty as a Clandestine Service Trainee. Living undercover as a "government budget analyst", she is suddenly isolated from her family and her past. The loneliness and isolation of life undercover lead Selena into a romantic relationship with her classmate Stan, who cannot put a spy's habits aside, even in the bedroom. She learns that spies who fall in love with one another enter a wilderness of mirrors, where deception and betrayal are nothing less than professional obligations.

From the Inside Flap:

After sending her resume to the CIA on a whim, New Yorker Selena Keller is contacted by an Agency recruiter, who asks her how she would feel about convincing another human being to commit treason. Despite her checkered past, Selena passes the background investigation and a battery of bizarre aptitude tests. Living under cover as a government budget analyst, she begins her education in espionage at the Farm, the CIA's covert facility.
All CIA officers must survive a demanding training program, and it is there that Selena becomes romantically involved with Stan, a brilliant but darkly paranoid fellow student with presidential ambitions. What happens next is a fascinating inside portrait of the Agency--how spies are recruited, how they are trained, who they meet, where they go, and most important . . . what happens when they fall in love, and begin spying on one another.

From the Back Cover:

Advance praise for Loose Lips

Loose Lips told me everything I ever wanted to know about the CIA but couldn’t think who to ask. Claire Berlinski’s Selena Keller is one part Inspector Clouseau and one part Nancy Drew, with a touch of Sex in the City’s Carrie Brad-shaw thrown in. Berlinski makes central intelligence funny and endearing and (go figure) intelligent.” —Meghan Daum, author of My Misspent Youth and The Quality of Life Report

“This looks like an insider’s account. Claire Berlinski does a marvelous job of portraying a young woman being plunged into a culture most Americans find difficult to understand. It’s an honest book. It should be read by anyone intending to work for the CIA.” —Robert Baer, author of See No Evil
