Based on reader comments on various sites, Gellhorn fetishists really hate this book. Perhaps it's because, unlike Caroline Moorehead's bigger, more ambitious "Gellhorn" (which I haven't read), this biography of the celebrated war correspondent (and Ernest Hemingway's third wife) isn't written by an officially sanctioned fan. Perhaps it's because Rollyson attempts to detail Gellhorn's sexual trysts and dares to suggest that she sometimes slept with men to advance her career. Whatever the case, the vitriol is misplaced. True, "Beautiful Exile" is not elegantly written, but the research appears to be solid and the analysis of her work never goes over the top. It's also obvious that the author admires his subject enormously, even while doggedly pursuing the ragged edges of her life.
I love Dev so I was hoping his story would have a little more pazazz.
This is the definitive answer to Karen Armstrong's well known history of Islam. Scary, captivating, and damned blunt, this is a must read book for anyone that hopes to live through the next two decades! You think you know about Islam. But, did you know that Islam teaches that Muslims must wage war to impose Islamic law on non-Muslim states, or that American Muslim groups are engaged in a huge cover-up of Islamic doctrine? These and other "politically incorrect" facts are revealed by Robert Spencer in The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades). Spencer traces the history of Islam, the teachings of the Qur'an, and the Crusades, and reveals the myths and realities related to Islamic law, the treatment of women, and the continuing jihad.
