What to Read This Summer
By Caroline Moorehead
Do you miss the 20th century yet? Selected Letters of Martha Gellhorn (release in August 2006), edited by Caroline Moorehead, offers nearly 70 years' worth of the renowned international journalist's passionate, political, and deeply personal correspondence with everyone from H.G. Wells to Eleanor Roosevelt (missives to her husband Ernest Hemingway are addressed to "Dearest Pup-pup"). The flamboyant Gellhorn reminds us of one reason we travel—to look homeward with a worldly eye.
