A Memoir by Grace Kennan Warnecke

Grace Kennan Warnecke’s memoir, Daughter of the Cold War, is about a life lived on the edge of history. Daughter of one of the most influential diplomats of the twentieth century, wife of the scion of a newspaper dynasty and mother of the youngest owner of a major league baseball team, Grace eventually found her way out from under the shadows of others to forge a dynamic career of her own.

A vivid account of living a life of one’s own with a famous father, supplying much that’s missing in other biographies. Highly recommended.
― John Lewis Gaddis, Yale University, author of George F. Kennan: An American Life

Grace Kennan Warnecke provides details of an extraordinarily vibrant life, spanning many relocations, relationships, and projects in the arts, journalism, and business as a leading Russia expert and critic.
― Alexander Cooley, Director, Harriman Institute, Columbia University

Beautifully crafted, a pleasure to read. Warnecke is more than just George F. Kennan’s daughter. She was present at important historical events and adds interesting details as to how we understand them.
― Blair Ruble, Vice President for Programs at the Woodrow Wilson Center
