Beautiful Exile The Life of Martha GelhornAlways resisted the idea of a biography and it was only after her death that her friends felt free to speak to Carl Rollyson about her; the result is a book that does justice to a woman who lived life to the fullest lived it on her own terms and in so doing became an icon of her times. Enlightening Awesome read Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and learning about the early war correspondents Martha was as insightful Individual who had a passion for people less fortunate

I had never heard of Martha Gellhorn until I read a free book last month about her life with Hemingway Her worst fears were true for me I got the book because of his name and found out all about Martha She had a very interesting life as described in this book by Rollyson I kept hoping for some secrets about Martha but she was an excellent journalist but not so great as a fiction writer She may have helped make her unknown by burning all of the letters sent to her by Hemingway She was too strong for him and probably for most men She knew her own mind and was able to enjoy her solitude when she could mix with others as she chose I admired her but expect she had a very lonely life She was never content and was always wishing to be on the forefront of battles almost any battle would do She started with the Spanish Civil War and ended with the US in Vietnam and then in El Salvador Not the best face of America but then neither is the year 2018 Martha is a stunning woman tall with blond hair and enough money to do her own thing I am glad I discovered her Makes me think there are women who did their own thing but we never hear of them because most writers are men

Y lovers and her innumerable friends included Presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy She was a tireless campaigner against tyranny and deprivation and she continued to the end to be outraged at the perfidy of governments and contemptuous of those she considered phony and insincere Gellhorn. I’ll admit that I knew nothing of Martha Gellhorn before reading this book but it sounds like she was a fascinating woman I struggled at time with her and Ernest’s relationship and her penchant to forgive and explain away his appalling treatment of her I’ve always heard Ernest was a pig of a man and this book only reinforces that image It was a thoroughly interesting read and I’d definitely recommend it It was really interesting to hear about the wars from a journalist’s perspective too
