  • Sleeping with the Enemy–Update

    Posted by David Foster on March 18th, 2010 (All posts by )

    My post of a couple of weeks ago, Sleeping with the Enemy, (which expanded on an old novel by Arthur Koestler) has drawn some extensive and thoughtful remarks from Shrinkwrapped…definitely worth reading.

    Also, it is possible to discern a slight relationship between the woman called “Jihad Jane,” an American accused of terrorist activities, and Koestler’s protagonist Hydie Anderson. But as I noted in the post

    today’s Hydies are unlikely to share the educational and religious depth of the woman Koestler imagined

    To put it mildly, judging from appearances in this case. Looks like I called that one right!
