As narrator, Ellen Barkin brings across the uniqueness of Martha Gellhorn, a pioneering American journalist, feminist, and activist. Barkin narrates this collection of Gellhorn's letters with the precision of an expert archivist. Her contralto voice creates a bygone vocal persona that echoes the 1930s-40s, the years featured in this audiobook. Barkin carefully presents Gellhorn's selected correspondence to dozens of international luminaries, such as Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt, Ingrid Bergman, and, of course, Ernest Hemingway, Gellhorn's husband of five years. We feel as though we are hearing from Gellhorn herself as Barkin balances the tension, drama, and affection that passed between Gellhorn and her intended recipients. The author provides context that stitches the various excerpts into seamless glimpses of Gellhorn's fascinating life. M.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
