Description

Discover the life of one of the twentieth century’s most significant and notorious war correspondents, and the third wife of Ernest Hemingway.

Martha Gellhorn’s journalism tracks many of the flashpoints of the twentieth century; as a young woman she witnessed the suffering of the American Depression and risked her life in the Spanish Civil War. Her dispatches from the front made her a legend, yet her private life was often messy and volcanic.

Her determination to be a war correspondent – and her conspicuous success – contributed to the breakdown of her infamously stormy marriage to Ernest Hemingway. In this mesmerising biography of a life that spanned the twentieth century, Moorehead reveals how passionately Martha fought against injustice, and how determined she was to catch the human story.

‘A deeply sympathetic portrait… [it shows] an overwhelming sense of what it is to be human’ Daily Telegraph
