"Martha Gellhorn died in February 1998, just shy of her ninetieth birthday. Well before her death she had already become a legend. As a reporter, she had covered wars from Spain in the 1930s to Panama in the 1980s, and her travel books had become classics. She had taken three husbands, including Ernest Hemingway, many lovers, an ageing H. G. Wells among them, and her innumerable friends had included two presidents, Roosevelt and Kennedy. She had been a tireless campaigner against tyranny and deprivation and had continued, to the end, to be outraged at the perfidy of governments, including that of her native country, and contemptuous of those she considered phoney and insincere."--BOOK JACKET.
