Holt PP New York YR 2006 SN 0805065555 9780805065558 AB "Martha Gellhorn's reporting career brought her to the front lines of virtually every significant conflict from the Spanish Civil War to the end of the cold war. While Gellhorn's wartime dispatches rank among the best of the century, her personal letters are their equal: as vivid and fascinating as her reporting was trenchant. Gellhorn's correspondence introduces us to the woman behind the often inscrutable journalist, chronicling her friendships with twentieth-century luminaries as well as her tempestuous marriage to Ernest Hemingway. Caroline Moorehead, Gellhorn's critically acclaimed biographer, was granted exclusive access to the letters. This expertly edited volume contextualizes Gellhorn's correspondence within the arc of her entire life; the result is an intimate portrait of one of the most accomplished women of modern times."--Publisher's website. Spanning the years from 1930 to 1996, the correspondence of the acclaimed journalist chronicles Gellhorn's career from the Spanish Civil War to the end of the Cold War, as well as her turbulent marriage to Ernest Hemingway.
