Review: A Man

User Review  - Scott Not Working - Goodreads

The first half is an intense second person account of the prison and torture of a Greek political prisoner. Second half is a nice love&politics story, with an interesting take on the return to democracy in post-junta Greece in the mid 1970s. Read full review

About the author (1980)

A prize-winning novelist and journalist, Oriana Fallaci is known primarily for her controversial interviews. She has spoken unabashedly, if not abrasively, with such world figures as Henry Kissinger, Willy Brandt, the Ayatollah Khomeini, Yasir Arafat, the Shah of Iran, Indira Ghandi, and Golda Meir. Her bold, often brilliant, interviewing technique is characterized by brutal frankness, as when she challenged Henry Kissinger to "talk about war.
