9780907871774: Travels with Myself and Another

A brilliantly witty and intelligent memoir of the adventures, discoveries, rescues, and narrow escapes of Martha Gellhorn, one of America's most important war correspondents and the third wife of Ernest Hemingway. "Gellhorn is incapable of writing a dull sentence". The Times (London) "Martha Gellhorn was so fearless in a male way, and yet utterly capable of making men melt", writes New Yorker literary editor Bill Buford. As a journalist, Gellhorn covered every military conflict from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam and Nicaragua. She also bewitched Eleanor Roosevelt's secret love and enraptured Ernest Hemingway with her courage as they dodged shell fire together. Hemingway is, of course, the unnamed "other" in the title of this tart memoir, first published in 1979, in which Gellhorn describes her globe-spanning adventures, both accompanied and alone. With razor-sharp humor and exceptional insight into place and character, she tells of a tense week spent among dissidents in Moscow; long days whiled away in a disused water tank with hippies clustered at Eilat on the Red Sea; and her journeys by sampan and horse to the interior of China during the Sino-Japanese War. Now including a foreward by Bill Buford and photographs of Gellhorn with Hemingway, Dorothy Parker, Madame Chiang Kai-shek, Gary Cooper, and others, this new edition rediscovers the voice of an extraordinary woman and brings back into print an irresistibly entertaining classic.

About the Author:

Martha Gellhorn was born in 1908 in St Louis Missouri, the perfect place for a travel writer she felt, because people were always trying to get away from it. She died at the age of 89 in London having reported on almost every conflict from the Spanish Civil War to the disintegration of Yugoslavia. In her late 80s she researched and wrote an excoriating expose of the evils perpetrated on South American street children. Gellhorn wanted to be remembered as a novelist and wrote 11 books of fiction, and only three non-fiction books.

Review:

"one of the funniest travel books of our time" Dervla Murphy
