Letter To A Child Never Born by Oriana Fallaci

Original Title: Letter To A Child Never Born

Published by Rizzoli in 1975, Letter to a Child Never Born was quickly translated and sold in twenty-seven countries, becoming an extraordinary world success. It is the tragic monologue of a woman speaking with the child she carries in her womb. This letter confronts the burning theme of abortion, and the meaning of life, by asking difficult questions: Is it fair to impose life even if it means suffering? Would it be better not to be born at all? Letter to a Child Never Born touches on the real meaning of being a woman: the power to give life or not. When the book begins, the protagonist is upset after learning she is pregnant. She knows nothing about the child, except that this creature depends totally and uniquely on her own choices. The creation of another person directly within one’s own body is a very shocking thing. The sense of responsibility is huge; it is a heavy burden that gives life to endless reflections, from the origin of our existence to the shame of our selfishness. If the child could choose, would he prefer to be born, to grow up, and to suffer, or would he return to the joyful limbo from which he came? A woman’s freedom and individuality are also challenged by a newborn—should she renounce her freedom, her job, and her choice? What should she do at this point?

Interviews With History And Conversations With Power by Oriana Fallaci

Original Title: Interviews With History And Conversations With Power

Fallaci, who covered wars throughout the world, and was almost killed more than once while doing so, had great personal courage and strong moral conviction. She once said she conducted herself according To The credo that "disobedience toward the oppressive as the only way to use the miracle of having been born." Never shy, bestselling Italian author and journalist Oriana Fallaci was granted access to countless world leaders, politicians and other notables across the globe. Some of her most memorable interviews included in this volume are those with the Dalai Lama, Ariel Sharon, Lech Walesa, Robert Kennedy, Deng Xiao-ping, James Farmer (U.S. Civil Rights leader), Henry Kissinger, Golda Meir, Yasser Arafat, King Hussein of Jordan, Indira Gandhi, Ali Bhutto, Mohammed Riza Pahlavi (former Shah of Iran), and Haile Selassie Fallaci actually preferred to be thought of as a writer and not a journalist, and her articles show this. When writing, she included her thoughts -- passions unhindered -- on the experience of interviewing her subject. In her interviews, Fallaci was never afraid to share her opinions, unafraid of her critics. Where many journalists choose not to take a stance, Fallaci's opinions are always part of her work. She strived to go beyond the apparent -- looking for and gaining revelations from her subjects. In each interview, The descriptions are vivid and colorful with no physical detail too small or inconsequential to notice. The reader feels as if he or she was there at the interview. Eloquent and articulate, politically minded and always opinionated, Fallaci's writing has been translated from Italian into English, Spanish, French, Dutch, German, Greek, Swedish, Croatian, and many other languages.
