HBO recently released a new movie titled "Hemingway and Gellhorn" which recounts the marriage of Ernest Hemingway and journalist Martha Gellhorn.
Gellhorn (1908–98) had a six-decade career as a war correspondent and published sixteen books, including six novels, short fiction, and two collections of journalistic articles. Her story is also in paperback, not just on TV.
Love Goes to Press (University of Nebraska Press, 2010), starts in a press camp on the Italian front in 1944, two women war correspondents—smart, sexy, and famous for scooping their male competitors—struggle to balance their professional lives with their love lives. Gellhorn and Virginia Cowles have created a world of “women without men” and complications ensue when one of our heroines unexpectedly encounters her ex-husband, a famous writer whom she had divorced on the grounds of plagiarism.
