The Letters of Martha Gellhorn

Gellhorn, Martha

Letters were war correspondent, Martha Gellhorn's main form of social life.
Describing herself as 'a sour human yogurt' who 'never kept a writer's compost heap of diaries,' underplays the fact that she was the outstanding female war correspondent of the mid century decades. A nomadic work-horse, she wrote about Dachau and D-Day, and her dispatches from Vietnam in 1966 were the most ferocious attacks on US foreign policy yet published in the Western press.

This book was shortlisted for both the Whitbread Biography prize and the James Tait Black award.

Selected and edited by Caroline Moorehead, Martha Gellhorn's biographer.
