Picks and Pans Review: Buzz Book: Fair Game by Valerie Plame Wilson

UPDATED 11/05/2007 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 11/05/2007 at 01:00 AM EST

• In her new memoir, Wilson describes being unmasked as a covert CIA agent and the personal turmoil that followed. She spoke about it to PEOPLE's Richard B. Stolley in Santa Fe, where she and her family now live.

HOW DID YOU FEEL WHEN YOU REALIZED YOU'D BEEN OUTED? I read Robert Novak's column in the Washington Post on July 14, 2003. My husband, Joe, came in, put the paper on the bed and said, "Well, the SOB did it." I felt as if I'd been sucker-punched.

DO YOU MISS BEING A SPY? I loved my job. Yeah, I miss it.

WOULD YOU WANT YOUR 7-YEAR-OLD TWINS TO BE SPIES? I hope they think about public service of some sort. I'd love to be the poster child for the CIA, to talk to young people and say, "We need all the smart young blood we can get." That's not going to happen.

WHY DID YOU INCLUDE A CHAPTER ON YOUR POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION? I felt that I had extremely high coping skills, but the depression hit me like a ton of bricks. Maybe my book can help someone else.
