This book has been inspired by the personal relationship between the author and the famous journalist and writer Oriana Fallaci. It is the true story of the friendship that developed against all odds between two very different women. It starts with each of them taking an antagonistic attitude toward the other that gradually transforms itself into mutual respect and ultimately friendship. This novel has no political or religious direction, although many of the conversations the two women have between them reflect their personal opinion on many issues of the day. The book might be considered controversial for the views expressed, but its real purpose is to give a human and psychological portrait of one of the greatest female journalists of our era. You will discover that behind the courageous, strong character of Oriana, was lying dormant a truly sensitive heart. The life of Oriana Fallaci was dedicated to the true reporting of facts, but most of all, as a writer she never missed an opportunity to chant the hymn of the freedom of the individual, independently of any flag or colour of skin. A few dictators hated her, but she was adored by all women and men who were following in their heart the first human right that any man can have: freedom of opinion, and most of all, freedom of speech. Rita Petrini is a philosopher and freelance journalist. She divides her time between Palm Springs, California and Edinburgh, Scotland. Publisher's website: http://sbprabooks.com/RitaPetrini
