The Double Life of Katharine Clark, by Katharine Gregorio

Double Life of Katherine Clark

In 1955, Katharine Clark was the first American woman wire reporter working behind the Iron Curtain.  During her time in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, she met Milovan Djilas, a high-ranking Communist leader who was becoming disenchanted with the regime and its ideology.  He wrote an anti-Communist manifesto, while in Yugoslavia, but had no way to get it outside the country, until Katharine Clark befriended him and risked her life to smuggle this scathing document to the West, past the secret police who were watching everyone.  The document sold over 3 million copies world-wide and became a New York Times bestseller.

This strong-willed, fiercely independent woman with an ardent commitment to truth, justice and freedom put her life on the line to share ideas with the world, ultimately transforming both herself―and history―in the process.
