Martha Gellhorn-Troubles Seen
The Great Depression, Spain’s Civil War, Nuremberg, Greenham, The Miners’ Strike, El Salvador: Martha Gellhorn wrote unmatched despatches about practically every major story of the 20th Century, always siding with the ordinary folk, always railing against governments and the powerful. Her lovers included Ernest Hemingway but laughter with friends was what she loved best and tonight you’re her special guest for an evening of whisky, cigarettes, forgivable name-dropping, coruscating wit, awe-inspiring rage and dreadful cooking.
