First printing. Black cloth spine, copper boards, copper gilt titles. A handsome edition, containing four multi-part novellas. Unfortunately, no introduction was written for this book -- a pity since many readers may not be aware of Gellhorn's considerable writing skills. Although best known for her journalism, she demonstrates here a mastery of fiction as well, writing primarily about women in women in various circumstances.

About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of fiction by a popular war correspondent testifies to the scope of a talented writer, in stories that range in subject from poverty in the Depression-era South to genteel expatriate life in Africa.

About the Author:

Martha Gellhorn published five novels and seven prize-winning collections of her explosive journalism. Her career spanned several decades: She covered the 1937–38 war in Spain, sent dispatches from the front in World War II and followed the trail of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, and reported on the conflicts in Vietnam in 1966 and in Israel in 1967. Gellhorn died in 1998 at the age of 89.
