Anzi mi sembra migliorato come il vino che sa invecchiare. Oriana muore tra la notte del 14 15 settembre Una donna immensa, una donna grande dura si ma sensibile. Vogliosa di innamorarsi e di fare una famiglia.
Ricca dentro, strepitosa fuori. Amo come scrive, amo il suo coraggio, la voglia di dire a tutti i costi il suo pensiero giusto o sbagliato che sia. Credo che si dovrebbe prendere come esempio per la lotta contro le ingiustizie, per la forza di combattere contro tutto e tutti. Una donna unica in tutto.

What a life. What a story. Compulsively readable. The brevity contains volumes. The author's respect and affection for her subject does not distort her view. Fallaci's faults are legion and they are well represented here. Fallaci's supposed Islamophobia is addressed directly. Her criticism of religious extremism knows no denominational bounds. She is adamantly antifascist, anti-theocratic, and pro-woman.
She entered the ring with all of them and gave better than she got, punching above her weight with all these giants. And how can you fault a woman who loves so passionately? Di Stafano is a superb writer. Don't mistake her simple style, her use of the present tense to me, very effective , and her obvious narrative skills, as just those of a hack who stumbled onto a good subject. She crafts the story masterfully, including the frame of Fallaci's return to Florence to die. In between is an epic narrative that will inspire courage—the courage to write, fight, and love.
Aug 07, Kolumbina rated it it was amazing. Oriana Fallaci was born in the same year as my father and also died at the same year as him, As a reporter she travelled and covered the most interesting events, wars, interviews. Her articles were very special, her questions at interviews were interesting, private, nosy, brave As students we all read Oriana Fallaci, Oriana Fallaci 's articles and books were favorite subjects.
I read 2 of her books in es, "A man" and "Letter to a child never born", absolutely loved these books in that time. This book is a very well written biography of Oriana Fallaci. A well researched and a well delivered document, rich, interesting, lots of photographs, entertaining, hard to put down. Really great. I absolutely loved it.

La rubrica in questione si chiamava Hollywood dal buca della serratura. In questa storia della vita della grande giornalista e scrittrice o scrittore come lei Oriana Fallaci vista dal buco della serratura Inizio questa recensione al libro di Cristina de Stefano intitolato "Oriana - Una donna" parafrasando il titolo della rubrica che riuniva gli articoli che Oriana Fallaci inviavo all'Europeo dalla Mecca del Cinema e che fu il punto di partenza del suo primo libro "I sette peccati di Hollywood".
In questa storia della vita della grande giornalista e scrittrice o scrittore come lei preferiva definirsi fiorentina, scritta attingendo a svariate fonti, sia documentali che derivanti da dichiarazioni dirette rilasciatele da persone che conobbero, frequentarono e amarono Oriana Fallaci, Cristina de Stefano regala ai lettori un libro che si legge e non si fa lasciare facilmente.
Un libro che cattura al punto che persino un lettore non propriamente veloce quale il sottoscritto l'ha divorato in due sole giornate! Dec 06, Lisa-Michele rated it liked it. She was a tough journalist, a celebrity interviewer and a best-selling author. Think Christiane Amanpour meets Barbara Walters. When I was a young aspiring college journalist, she was one of the women I looked up to. I watched her to see how it was done. Oriana made her reputation as a war correspondent in Vietnam, but it was her hard-hitting interviews with world figures that made her famous.
When I wrote for the Dai She was a tough journalist, a celebrity interviewer and a best-selling author. But the comparisons ended with our lifestyles. She was a volatile, difficult, mostly lonely person, who never married or had children, pursuing many affairs and a dramatic love life. It dodges completely her attacks on Islam late in life. Plus, the biographer has an irritating way of writing in the pseudo-present tense, as in "her professional life is spent recounting injustices. Nov 07, Stefania T. Libri che ti cambiano i connotati. Che estraggono dalle viscere un po' di tutto.
Normalerweise lese ich keine Biographien, bei Oriana Fallaci musste ich aber eine Ausnahme machen. Als Cristina de Stefano vor ein paar Jahren von Fallacis Neffen beauftragt wurde, den Nachlass der Journalistin in einer Biographie zusammenzufassen, stand sie von einer unglaublich schwierigen Aufgabe. Zweitens war es bekannt, dass sich Oriana immer wieder weigerte diese Dokumente zum Zwecken einer Biographie freizugeben.
Wie geht man damit als Schriftstellerin um? Ich glaube es ihr sofort und bin umso mehr froh, dass sie trotzdem nicht aufgab. Ein Frauenleben ist ein kompaktes, respektvolles und sehr gut lesbares Buch. Dennoch habe ich das Lesen sehr genossen. Jun 08, Mike rated it it was amazing. A biography of a very accomplished journalist and later a writer.
She is fearless, and brilliant and not one to take no for an answer. Her interviews with top world politicians left a high mark in her journalistic career. She was obsessive, and thorough, and proved to herself that her gender was no hinderance. The author did an excellent job in portraying Oriana Fallaci at times tormented, as professional and whose interviews, and arti A biography of a very accomplished journalist and later a writer.
The author did an excellent job in portraying Oriana Fallaci at times tormented, as professional and whose interviews, and articles, and books were devotedly read by the millions worldwide As an Italian graduate, I had long admired Oriana Fallaci's work and was fascinated by this seemingly fearless woman who had made it as an investigative journalist at a time when it was very difficult for a woman to do so.
In , she famously took her chador off in Khomeini's presence and, interviewing Henry Kissinger in , she asked him why he was so popular. Kissinger at first denied that he was, then said he put his popularity down to the fact that he had always acted alone, like a cowboy riding out ahead of the wagon train. When the interview was published all over the world, it caused a scandal, as Americans were not very happy about the cowboy comparison.
Years later, Kissinger said that agreeing to be interviewed by Fallaci was one of the most unfortunate decisions of his life. From this excellent biography by Cristina de Stefano I learned a lot about Oriana that I hadn't realised before: that she had been a WW2 partisan, for instance and about her courage as a correspondent during the Vietnam war. I was astonished to learn that in love, the great Oriana Fallaci could be as foolish as the rest of us and the account of her affair with Alfredo Pieroni makes sad reading. Their love affair was all the more intense because it was conducted in the midst of war.
Oriana Fallaci had a love-hate relationship with America and once remarked that she was going to win. She lived happily in New York for many years and it was there that she meticulously researched her own family's history and wrote the first volume of it, Un cappello pieno di ciliege [A Hat Full of Cherries] which I am currently reading.
If you read Italian and are also eagle-eyed, you may notice that "ciliege" in the title is spelled without the final -i. Fallaci had insisted on this because it was both the Tuscan way and the way that her mother had pronounced the word. Knowing that she had an incurable tumour, Oriana Fallaci faced death as courageously as she had faced life and planned for it in detail.
At the end, she asked to be flown back to her beloved Tuscany, where she died on the night of 14th - 15th September This biography has greatly added to my knowledge of Oriana Fallaci and has led me to read more of her books. Ed essere disubbidiente per me significa, tra l'altro, stare all'opposizione. Giornalista, scrittrice e, soprattutto, donna. Il saggio si snoda in ordine cron "Essere giornalista per me significa essere disubbidiente. Vicende personali si affiancano a quelle professionali, ai suoi numerosi viaggi, alle sue corrispondenze di guerre, alle sue interviste che hanno fatto storia.
E' un'opera nella quale vive l'amore. Amore per lo scrivere, in primis, amore per il gionalismo, amore per gli uomini. Io ci ho provato ma non ci sono riuscita. Si considera una donna libera e moderna. Jan 11, Kokie rated it it was amazing Shelves: first-read. Now I sit here, having closed the cover, inspired by her gall, saddened by her losses, and encouraged to live life as she did: bravely. This is a woman we should all get to know, though we may never completely or truly understand her, because in the knowing we will gain more than mere facts.
We gain at least I hope , a bit of her shrewd mind to help us navigate the world we find ourselves in-a world I would I didn't know anything of Oriana Fallaci before I won this book in a GoodReads giveaway. We gain at least I hope , a bit of her shrewd mind to help us navigate the world we find ourselves in-a world I would have loved to see her take on in interviews if only to better explain what to think of it.
Una delle migliori biografie mai lette.

The book covers all aspects of her life, personal and professional, from her birth onward — it tells of her childhood, during which she along with her father was part of the Italian resistance, how her love of writing became a career in journalism, the development of her own powerful, provocative style of interviewing, and the way she passionately threw herself into everything she undertook, including the deep research she conducted to prepare for each interview.
Oriana Fallaci was a fiercely independent woman who seemed way ahead of the times in her perspective and thinking. The book and all the details of her life, perspective, principles, and the many facets of her reportedly difficult personality were fascinating. Dec 05, Mark rated it liked it. A functional account of Fallaci's life in a plodding translation. She seems to have been a fascinating person, even admirable, if not loveable.
Sep 05, Patti rated it liked it. Interesting from an historical standpoint but starts to get to be a tad dull. I am wondering if this has to do with the quality of the translation. Dec 21, georgia bookblast rated it it was amazing Shelves: reviewed-by-bookblast. What a trailblazer! What a life! Un libro mediocre per una grande donna. Jul 25, Ben rated it really liked it. How I wish I would have paid more attention to Oriana while she was alive. Quite an interesting firebrand. Jun 05, Kenda rated it it was ok.
Fascinating woman with a remarkable life.
It's also so utterly readable, told in the recounting of domestic, everyday episodes. The Neapolitan series so far is a masterclass in how to take off a mask and be oneself behind a barrier of one's own making. I really recommend this book, and I'm thrilled to read that this is part one of a trilogy. It impressed and delighted me and it was powerful enough to make me revoke my decision not to do any more book reviewing on this blog because I simply had to let you know about it Ferrante shows us the levers working the vice that warps and crushes the human soul.
A modern masterpiece from one of Italy's most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Incontrovertibly brilliant. A vivid portrait of female friendship sweeps from childhood in the back streets of impoverished Naples during the s through the Twentieth Century and their love affairs, marriages, motherhood. Passionate, intense, full of suspense and cinematic detail, these astonishing novels will keep you gripped throughout the summer. They devour them in all-night binges.

A modern masterpiece from one of Italy s most acclaimed authors, My Brilliant Friend is a rich, intense, and generous-hearted story about two friends, Elena and Lila. Ferrante is that rare gem, a novelist with impeccable literary credentials who also spins a good yarn - and who sells. It sounds so simple and restricted in nature but Ferrante, like her two protagonists, breaks every barrier with her impassioned, complex and honest narrative I cannot recommend this book enough. These novels are genuine page-turners; fast-paced, filmic, vividly alive with the sweat and dust of s Naples.
The prose is very straightfoward and easy to read. The characters are incredibly rich: forever surprising you, full of mystery and contradictions. Visualizza tutta la Descrizione prodotto. Chi ha acquistato questo articolo ha acquistato anche. Pagina 1 di 1 Pagina iniziale Pagina 1 di 1.

It was far too wordy and drawn out and I couldn't engage with any of the many, many characters. A few chapters in, I started to skip pages of for me excess description and ploughed my way to the end.
