    On November 4, 1979, Iranian militants stormed the American embassy in Tehran and captured dozens of American hostages, sparking a 444-day ordeal and a quake in global politics still reverberating today. But there's a little-known footnote to the crisis: six Americans escaped. And a midlevel agent named Antonio Mendez devised an ingenious yet incredibly risky plan to rescue them. Armed with foreign film visas, Mendez and an unlikely team of CIA agents and Hollywood insiders traveled to Tehran....

    If you could sum up Argo in three words, what would they be?

    History repeats itself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Argo?

    The invasion of the embassy by the militants using their own children, teens and wives as human shields and distractions to gain the element of surprise against the American guards was horrifying since the reader knew how the ploy ended.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At the end of the book after the houseguests had escaped and the involvement of the Canadians in their rescue was revealed to the world. The American response was powerful. It's a shame the movie glosses over those details.
