We learn about Capa's breakneck life. We learn about his great points and not so great points, which almost "everyone" forgave him for. He lived life for himself --drinking, sleeping around and making himself into a famous war photographer simultaneously. How he did this, formed a long lasting business and charmed the ladies ( including Ingrid Bergman) is the subject of this biography that uncovers the horrors of war while not being totally depressing. This is a credit to the biographer, Kershaw, and to Capa--a man's man and, actually, a nice guy.
Capa was talented, generous, humorous, and charismatic. An inveterate gambler, he played poker with the likes of John Huston and Ernest Hemmingway, and inevitably lost. Like most people who don't care about money, money problems plagued him.Read more ›
