Format: Hardcover
This unauthorized biography provided a rare view into the unusual life and career of one of the finest journalists of the 20th century. Oriana Fallaci has jealously guarded her own privacy, while making a career out of revealing often unflattering views of the movers and shakers of the 20th century. Oriana Fallaci's take her influence from her anti-fascist, intellectually idealistic upbringing. She worked tirelessly to break out of the limited existence most often reserved to a woman of her era. Her great political interviews and masterpieces like "A Letter to a Child Never Born" and "Inshallah" attest to her incisive, unconventional insight. I always wished to know more about her and now have had the opportunity.
Santo Arico is to be congratulated for finally shedding light on the incredible life journey of the most influential female journalist of our time.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is well written but not well organized. However, if you want to understand Fallaci you should read this book. It gives insight to her thinking and her young years during the Resistance which helped shape her ideas. There are some anectodes and a small chapter which references her Hollywood contacts. Her ego is well illustrated in this book and the references are well documented. If this book piques your interest, you will want to read 'Interviews with History' and the iconic 'A Man'.
