Reviews

  • "Gellhorn is a superb subject for biography. Caroline Moorehead has seized the opportunity with an elan that her subject would have admired. The result is an adventure story which, true to the genre, has moments of both triumph and tragedy"

    Independent on Sunday
  • "As one would expect from a writer of Caroline Moorehead's diligence and acuity, this is an extremely thorough, colourful and pacy biography"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "An enthralling biography - with an unflinching honesty Martha would have approved of"

    Daily Mail
  • "Superbly crafted, engaging and engaged... Martha Gellhorn leaps off the page-marvellous"

    Literary Review
  • "Not often does a biography make you against the odds fall headlong for its heroine...but Caroline Moorehead's exemplary and exciting account of the Hemingway wife who reported the war like it was sweeps you incisively into a broad-based history of the last century through the eyes of two women, author and subject, each as brilliant as the other but sharply differing in temperament"
