Sometimes it takes a moment . . . Sometimes it takes a lifetime . . . Sometimes a lifetime is not enough
In the summer of 1962 Nikita Khrushchev shipped medium-range nuclear missiles to Cuba. That summer she fell in love. While the United States withdrew from Vietnam, her oldest son trained for the buzkashi, the wild game of Afghan polo brought to her country by Genghis Khan. As the Russians invaded Afghanistan, her husband ran guns and opium through the Khyber Pass; as they retreated, she matched wits with a beautiful Czech spy. While the Taliban ravaged Kabul, she cared for a wounded bacha bereesh, an Afghan dancing boy. As the Twin Towers burned, she discovered one of life’s most precious secrets.
