Tulsa, OK – (Note: This interview originally aired earlier this year.) Today we speak with the author and former journalist Jennet Conant, whose previous books include such bestsellers as "The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington" and "Tuxedo Park: A Wall Street Tycoon and the Secret Palace of Science That Changed the Course of World War II." Conant's latest book --- which likewise explores a little-known or hitherto "hidden" facet WWII-era history --- is "A Covert Affair: Julia Child and Paul Child in the OSS." It's an exciting and engrossing read that Publishers Weekly has called a "meticulously researched, authoritative history."
