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. "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.

For everyone who has known and enjoyed Gary Lukatch's Newsletter and Blogs over the years, here is the definitive collection of every single one of those humorous, tedious, laugh-out-loud, birdcage-lining epistles. For all those recipients of these literary gems who may have, purely by accident, of course, disposed of some or all of the Newsletters, the author has gathered them all together in one beautifully paper-bound volume for your enjoyment and re-edification. AND - as a special added bonus - this volume also includes many of Gary's favorite and previously-unsung song lyrics, along with articles published in Budapest newspapers. There may even be a few other surprises along the way. So sit back, relax and enjoy perusing again all of the author's adventures you enjoyed in the past. This collection offers you many evenings of entertainment, pathos, humor, tears and general all-around fun. Actually, you should even buy two or three copies to give as gifts, it's such a fun book. The author wishes each and every one of you a happy Hungarian Independence Day.

This book tells the story of a young Englishman's voyage through life. He never experienced love from his mother. As he grew up, he discovered so many lies and deceit. He was denied the opportunity to hold his paternal father. A hug would have fulfilled a dream. He was also cheated from the dream by his aunt. He discovered a half sister in America when he was thirty-three and never connected with his brother; they drifted apart. He was hit by an angry uncle who was his mentor. He was cheated and lost a business that had the makings of a huge success. Foolishly, he allowed good times to override the serious side of life. Thus, he lost his wife, his children, and his beautiful home. A caravan on a farm became his sanctuary, stealing vegetables to survive. He rose from the wilderness and ran with the wind, breaking hearts as he traveled over and through other countries. Later, he married for a bet in a foreign country and soon divorced, only to marry again to an American Christian who emptied his bank account. She left him homeless and penniless. His family and friends discovered he would rise from the ashes and run again. He enjoyed many women; they enjoyed him. Working hard all his life gave him some lovely rewards. He endeavored to enjoy life to the fullest and make friends wherever he went. Finally, at age fifty-eight, he settled down, having found happiness in the Midwest of America. This is the story of how I transformed from a wild young lad to a very content older man.
