Description

"Riccardo, the West is sick, it's lost its will to fight, it opposes Islamic fundamentalism with empty values. Europe has become spineless. I'm near the end, Riccardo, and I want to die in Florence. I told you that in New York. And now the time has come. But I'll die standing on both my feet, like Emily Bronte." No other writer or journalist from the 20th century was able to engender debate like Oriana Fallaci. Her books, translated all over the world, her news reports and her invectives in the main international newspapers, made her one of the top protagonists of literature and journalism. Nencini, a friend of hers, reports the entire day they spent together shortly before her death tackling the most burning issues of the day, such as the Western Crisis, Terrorism and European Identity. With this book, Nencini shows us a new Fallaci, the private woman, unveiling many unknown aspects, a woman eaten up by illness but still free and defiant.
