Martha gellhorn travels with myself and another
Travels With Myself and Another by Martha GellhornNow including a foreward by Bill Buford and photographs of Gellhorn with Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, Gary Cooper, and others, this new edition rediscovers the voice of an extraordinary woman and brings back into print an irresistibly entertaining classic.
Martha Gellhorn was so fearless in a male way, and yet utterly capable of making men melt, writes New Yorker literary editor Bill Buford. As a journalist, Gellhorn covered every military conflict from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam and Nicaragua. She also bewitched Eleanor Roosevelts secret love and enraptured Ernest Hemingway with her courage as they dodged shell fire together.Hemingway is, of course, the unnamed other in the title of this tart memoir, first published in 1979, in which Gellhorn describes her globe-spanning adventures, both accompanied and alone. With razor-sharp humor and exceptional insight into place and character, she tells of a tense week spent among dissidents in Moscow; long days whiled away in a disused water tank with hippies clustered at Eilat on the Red Sea; and her journeys by sampan and horse to the interior of China during the Sino-Japanese War.

Thank you! Journalist and novelist Martha Gellhorn introduces these as ""the best of my worst journeys""; but think not of dashed hopes and comical mishaps. - May 01, Minutes Buy. May 07, ISBN
That Proust took a lot out of me. It was too much for me to handle, and too poorly-timed, I think. I get it. It is a biopic about Ernest Hemingway, the Nobel Laureate, and Martha Gellhorn, a badass war correspondent, and their relationship and brief, bad, marriage during the Second World War. I want to go in, though, knowing who Gellhorn is, how she thinks and what kind of a person she is. Well, was. I had a conflicted, if sometimes rewarding , time.
