Travels with Myself and Another, A Memoir

Travels with Myself and Another, A Memoir

by Martha Gellhorn

  • TRAVEL NARRATIVE
  • 2001
  • PAPER
  • 304 PAGES

The "Another" of this title (also known as the unwilling companion), was Gellhorn's husband at the time, Ernest Hemingway. Her witty account of worldwide travels is a classic of unexpected encounters and sharp description. She's a marvelous, incisive writer who covered every important conflict from from the Spanish Civil War to Vietnam and Nicaragua. The book includes an uncomfortable journey to visit with Chiang Kai-Shek, a remarkbale look at dysfunctional Moscow, and escapades with Hemingway in East Africa. Originally published in 1979. Gellhorn died in 1998 at the age of eighty-nine.  (TVL25, $17.00)
