"Mrs. Pollifax is an enchantress."THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEWMrs. Virgil (Emily) Pollifax of New Brunswick, New Jersey, was a widow with grown children. She was tired of attending her Garden Club meetings. She wanted to do something good for her country. So, naturally, she became a CIA agent. This time, the assignment sounds as tasty as a taco. A quick trip to Mexico City is on.   The thing I am most attracted to about the Dorothy Gilman books (not only Mrs. Pollifax but the others) is the sense of magic, otherworldliness, almost occult sometimes. That’s what I have not been able to find in other authors.

MRS. POLLIFAX Mysteries: Main Character: Emily Pollifax, Spy, New Jersey. The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax ’66 Mexico City, Mexico; The Amazing Mrs. Pollifax ’70 Istanbul, Turkey; The Elusive Mrs. Pollifax ’71 Bulgaria; A Palm for Mrs. Pollifax ’73 Switzerland; Mrs. Pollifax on Safari ’77 Africa; Mrs. Pollifax on the China Station ’83 China. The entire Mrs. Pollifax series by Dorothy Gilman – My grandmother introduced me to these, and Mrs. Pollifax is one of my favorite characters of all time. Mrs. Pollifax is a widow and senior citizen who decides one day to leave her comfortable apartment in New Brunswick, New Jersey and join the CIA. Funny, thoughtful, and absolutely charming.

  Mrs Pollifax goes to such interesting locations where such interesting politics is going on. In this book, she travels to Zambia for a safari, and the politics of the day is the creation of Zimbabwe. It was an interesting book and lots of fun, as usual!
