Oriana Fallaci : The Journalist, the Agitator, the Legend
Oriana Fallaci is known for her uncompromising vision. To retrace Fallaci's life is to retrace the course of history from World War II to 9/11.
As a child, Fallaci enlisted in the Italian Resistance alongside her father, and her hatred of fascism and authoritarian regimes remained strong throughout her life. Covering the entertainment industry early in her career, she created an original, abrasive interview style, focusing on her subjects' emotions, contradictions, and facial expressions more than their words. When she grew bored with movie stars and directors, she turned her attention to the international political figures of the time--Khomeini, Gaddafi, Indira Gandhi, Kissinger--always placing herself front and center in the story. Also a war reporter working wherever there was conflict, she would provoke controversies that became news themselves.
With unprecedented access to personal records, Cristina De Stefano brings to life this remarkable woman whose groundbreaking work and torrid love affairs are not easily forgotten. Oriana Fallaci allows a new generation to discover her story and witness the passionate, unstinting journalism so urgently needed in these times of upheaval and uncertainty.
