Lying Abroad

£15.99
Synopsis: 

Lying Abroad is about the author's life as a British diplomat. Now that might seem like a strange title, but it is in fact based on a very famous remark made by a British diplomat under the Stuarts in the early seventeenth century. He was asked, “What does an ambassador do?” and replied, “Well, an ambassador is an honest person, sent to ‘lie abroad’ for the sake of his country.” The author had one great asset: a sense of humour and the encounters included in this book are some of the more light-hearted events in his diplomatic life.
