Book Description

The Unmasking of Oriana Fallaci: Part II and Conclusion to Her Life Story brings to an end years of painstaking research. This biography highlights Fallaci’s career as a journalist, interviewer, war reporter, essayist, and novelist. Its uniqueness consists less in a chronological listing of events but rather in emphasis on the core of Fallaci’s psychological dynamism. This woman from Florence relentlessly placed her embellished persona in the public eye; she thirsted for stardom, allowing nothing to block her ascent to prominence; she essentially functioned as her own publicity agent.
Aricò maintains that this same narcissism is present in all of her early Hollywood articles, celebrated interviews, book on NASA space travels, best-selling novels, and end-of-life trilogy against Islam. Indeed, Fallaci’s posthumously published history of her ancestors not only takes on the structure of an epic saga but also of an in-depth autobiography. Her entire history of inserting herself onto center stage received reinforcement by the eye-catching portraits of her by world-famous photographers.
Aricò bases The Unmasking on extensive investigation, meetings with people who knew her, and fourteen one-on-one recorded interviews at her homes in New York and Florence. His exposé stands as Fallaci’s only definitive and authoritative biography in the English-speaking world.

About the Author

Santo L. Aricò is the editor of Contemporary Women Writers in Italy: A Modern Renaissance (1990). He has also authored Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Art of Persuasion in ''La Nouvelle Héloise'' (1994) and Oriana Fallaci: The Woman and the Myth (1998). The Unmasking of Oriana Fallaci: Part II and Conclusion to Her Life Story reveals much information not in the first Fallaci book.
Aricò's future plans involve releasing memoirs about growing up in Brooklyn and further books researching the history of eighteenth-century Paris. For recreation, Aricò digitally publishes detective stories and plays Bach, bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music on his mandolin.

I was fascinated by this dynamic woman and wanted to learn more about her. This book was so incredibly boring that I spent 20 minutes trying to get engaged in reading it, then ended up throwing the book in the recycling bin. The author seems way more interested in proving his point and getting vengeance then telling the story of Oriana Fallaci and her life. Fortunately I bought it used and did not pay much so the recycling bin seemed the most appropriate place for it as I cannot imagine that anyone would want to read it.
