I have just read of the death of the Italian journalist and author Oriana Fallaci. In my opinion she was a great interviewer and her work influenced me a lot during the eighties and beyond. She was in New York on 9/11 and that experience may have clouded her judgement somewhat; yet she has said what others have feared to say with regard to the threat we face. I return to her novel Un Uomo ["A Man"] [1979] a lot and also to Lettera a un Bambino Mai Nato ["Letter to a Child Never Born"] [1975] .

Yes, she was so beautiful too, I remember reading some of her work, I didn't realise she was 76.

I posted about Oriana's death too and was surprised to find out that so many people ouside of Italy had never even heard of her. Che peccato.
