"I remember Oriana Fallaci vividly and was thrilled to read this novel about her work and her life, particularly her great romance in the early 70s with a man who was not afraid of her ability and ambition. Anastasia Rubis writes with a passion for her subject that matches Oriana's own craving for a big full life and in turn does her and the era a great justice. In scene after breathtaking scene, we relive a time of great hope when getting at the truth was possible. A truly inspiring debut." -- Alice Elliott Dark, author of In the Gloaming and Fellowship Point
