Mailbox Monday: Assigned to Adventure by Irene Corbally Kuhn

What books came into your house last week? I got a new edition of a memoir originally published in 1938.

Assigned to Adventure by Irene Corbally Kuhn. Irene Kuhn was an American writer who worked as a journalist in Paris, Shanghai, and Hawaii; a Hollywood script writer; an executive and broadcaster for NBC; a New York columnist; and a contributor to Gourmet magazine. She published her memoirs in 1938.

This new edition includes a forward by Kuhn's granddaughter, Dr. Heather Corbally Bryant, who has written a companion novel based on her grandmother called You Can't Wrap Fire in Paper.

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday, a weekly "show & tell" blog event where participants share the books they acquired the week before. Visit the Mailbox Monday website to find links to all the participants' posts and read more about Books that Caught our Eye.

Mailbox Monday is graciously hosted by Leslie of Under My Apple Tree, Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit, and Martha of Reviews by Martha's Bookshelf.


  1. To have been a female journalist back in the 1930s, must have been some achievement and I can imagine, that whilst this book probably isn't one for me, it is going to be ultra interesting to read.

    I like the way that Heather's book is an exact replica cover image of her grandmothers and I wonder if you are hoping to read this one also?

    It would be good to know what you think about the stories of these two remarkable women.

    Have a good week :)


  2. This sure looks interesting. Hope you enjoy it a lot. Happy Reading!

  3. ENJOY!!

    Sounds very interesting!!
