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?

Translated and sold in nineteen countries, the bestseller that brought Oriana Fallaci world success Published for the first time in 1979 by Rizzoli, A Man is the passionate story of Alekos Panagulis, hero of the Greek Resistance and Fallaci’s partner. On May 1, 1976, Alexandros Panagulis, known as Alekos, the lonely hero of the Greek riot against tyranny and power, died tragically in a suspicious car crash. During his funeral, millions of people crowded the streets of Athens screaming “Zi, zi, zi!”—“Live, live, live!” This is the opening scene of A Man—and the final scene in the life of Alekos and of his love story with the author. The narration goes back some years, and the reader relives the breakdown of Alekos’s relationship with Oriana Fallaci, starting with his attempt to kill the tyrant Papadopulos and his consequent arrest. Balancing romance and reportage, Fallaci describes Alekos’s personal fight against tyranny and his desperate attempt to escape his inevitable arrest. Alekos became a real hero for the Greek population; the political leadership could not kill him without stirring up the suspicion of the public. The government built him a prison called Boiati, where he survived tremendous torture, hunger strikes, and terribly unsanitary conditions. After his release, Fallaci met and interviewed him. They fell in love and shared years of romance, obsession, and madness, all recounted in this extraordinary book. The story centers on their strong and deep love, intertwined with the struggle of this Greek tragic hero, who desperately looked for freedom and who, in the end, was just a man.

With this book Fallaci breaks a ten year silence--the silence she kept until September 11's apocalypse in her Manhattan house. She breaks it with a deafening noise. In Europe this book has caused a turmoil--polemics, discussion, debates, hearty praises, wild attacks. Fallaci faces the themes unchained by the Islamic terrorism: the contrast and, in her opinion, incompatibility between the Islamic world and the Western world; the global reality of the Jihad and the lack of response, the lenience of the West. She defends our culture and blames what she calls our blindness, our deafness, our masochism, the conformism and the arrogance of the Politically Correct.--From publisher description.
