Who Is Vera Kelly?
Who Is Vera Kelly? | Rosalie Knecht
New York City, 1962. Vera Kelly is struggling to make rent and blend into the underground gay scene in Greenwich Village. She's working night shifts at a radio station when her quick wits, sharp tongue, and technical skills get her noticed by a recruiter for the CIA. Next thing she knows she's in Argentina, tasked with wiretapping a congressman and infiltrating a group of student activists in Buenos Aires. As Vera becomes more and more enmeshed with the young radicals, the fragile local government begins to split at the seams.When a betrayal leaves her stranded in the wake of a coup, Vera learns the Cold War makes for strange and unexpected bedfellows, and she's forced to take extreme measures to save herself. An exhilarating page turner and perceptive coming-of-age story, Who Is Vera Kelly? introduces an original, wry and whip-smart female spy for the twenty-first century.

Loved, loved this book about a fictional female spy in Argentina at the height of the Cold War. The chapters alternate between her time as “Anne” in Argentina, planting bugs and listening in on dissidents, and her life in Maryland and New York as Vera that leads her to the CIA. 4.5⭐️

I feel like there were a few parts of this book that were missing tension they should have had. It was strangely cozy when it probably shouldn't have been. But I enjoyed it, anyway.

Vera is a young spy in Argentina. Book jumps back and forth between present and her past that leads to her working for the CIA. It was an interesting character study and portrayal of what daily life as a spy is like but there was nothing particularly compelling. ⭐️⭐️⭐️. Picture at our local library where I finished listening to this one.

A story about a woman spy during 1960s in Argentina. I liked the historical aspects of this book, aka the political intrigue of Argentina. I do appreciate the attempts at characterization, the set up shifts between the events of her mission and her childhood to paint an image of Vera. But the plot was sort of anti climatic and while good elements are there I didn‘t find that it came together as well as I would hope.

Cinfhen It‘s a great cover, though! 8mo

A quick read, interesting and vibrant. Vera is an intriguing MC and the author gives us a peek into both the strained environment of the Cold War, and the challenges faced by the gay community in the 50‘s and 60‘s. #spynovel #queerreads #librarybook #girlscandoanything

The cover blurb promised "[t]he twisty, literary, woman-driven spy novel you've always wanted to read. Dazzling." I'd say it fell *way* short. While I have the ARC, I read w/ears. Maybe the narrator dulled it down? I wasn't dazzled. Story jumps around from Vera's juvenile delinquent home for girls years to her CIA assignment in Argentina in the early 60s. That's neither here nor there in terms of my satisfaction. I was expecting more excitement.

This is the gay lady spy novel of my dreams.

Vera is a spy in Argentina in the 60s, and that story is interspersed with chapters set a decade beforehand, where her backstory unfolds. I love this book so hard.

I enjoyed the premise of this -- young female spy sent to Argentina during the late 1960's to do electronic surveillance. The setting and character' s viewpoint were unique and kept me reading even though the pacing was slower than you typically see in a soy novel.

There is a bit of James Bond style adventure in this book but it‘s really more literary fiction. The book is about Vera, who she is, and how she came to be a spy in Argentina and in general. Chapters alternate between short flashbacks beginning when Vera is 17 and her spying in Argentina. I particularly enjoyed the flashbacks though Argentina was good too.

I throughly enjoyed this spy novel which was more of a character study. There are some echoes of John LeCarre here. Primarily, this is a fabulous character study. The clever chronology works well (Two alternating timelines: beginning in 1958, when Vera is a high school student; and in the midst of a government assignment in Buenos Aires in 1966. Eventually, the first timeline catches up with the 1966 story. Fun and fast-paced. #netgalley

This is a beautiful novel about a woman struggling to pay rent when she gets approached by the CIA. Underneath it all, this illustrates the ways in which politics overlap with the personal and the ways our love is political. I am moved that this novel doesn‘t shy away from the ways politics resemble a husband/wife. Sometimes you are in love with the shadow of the breathing body next to you; and sometimes shocked by the monster lying beside you.
