Descripción FSG. 1 Cloth(s), 2014. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Madrid 1936. In a city blasted by a civil war that many fear will cross borders and engulf Europe, six people meet and find their lives changed forever. Author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist Everybody Was So Young, Amanda Vaill chronicles the interactions between Ernest Hemingway—amassing the material he will use to write For Whom the Bell Tolls—and Martha Gellhorn, an ambitious and attractive journalist; Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, idealistic young photographers who are inventing modern photojournalism; and Arturo Barea, chief of the Spanish government's foreign press office, and Ilsa Kulcsar, his Austrian deputy, whose struggle to tell the truth is at odds with loyalty to their cause."A highly original, beautifully written, and utterly compelling account, by turns gripping and heartbreaking, of the intrepid—and sometimes crazy—journalists who risked everything to report on the Spanish Civil War."—Amanda Foreman 437.

Descripción Farrar Straus Giroux, U.S.A., 2014. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Estado de la sobrecubierta: New. 1st Edition. Madrid, 1936. In a city blasted by a civil war that many fear will cross borders and engulf Europe -- a conflict one writer will call "the decisive thing of the century" -- six people meet and find their lives changed forever. Ernest Hemingway, his career stalled, his marriage gone sour, hopes that this war will give him fresh material and new romance; Martha Gellhorn, an ambitious novice journalist hungry for love and experience, thinks she will find both with Hemingway in Spain. Robert Capa and Gerda Taro, idealistic young photographers based in Paris, want to capture history in the making, and the invent modern photojournalism in the process. And Arturo Barea, the chief of the Spanish government's foreign press office in Madrid, and Ilsa Kulcsar, his Austrian deputy, struggle to balance truth-telling with loyalty to their sometimes compromised cause -- an effort that places both of them in peril. Beginning with the cloak-and-dagger plot that precipitated the first gunshots of the war and moving forward month by month to the end of the conflict, HOTEL FLORIDA traces the tangled and disparate wartime destinies of these three couples against the backdrop of a critical moment in history: a moment that called forth both the best and the worst from those caught up in it. In this noir landscape of spies, soldiers, revolutionaries, and artists, the shadow line between truth and falsehood sometimes became faint indeed -- your friend could be your enemy, and honesty could get you (or someone else) killed. Years later Hemingway would say, "It is very dangerous to write the truth in war, and the truth is very dangerous to come by." In HOTEL FLORIDA, from the raw material of unpublished letters and diaries, official documents, and recovered reels of film, the celebrated biographer Amanda Vaill has created a narrative of love and reinvention that is, finally, a story about truth: finding it, telling it, and living it -- whatever the cost.
