Lipgloss and landmines: women reporters in Spain and elsewhere

October 4, 2010

A feature in Fabulous magazine on women war journalists, including Martha Gellhorn:

Described by her biographer as a woman who “smoked, drank and travelled with abandon” and used sex to get the best stories, American Martha Gellhorn had an epic career spanning 60 years. She wrote of the human suffering in the Spanish Civil War in 1937, reported from the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in 1944, and was still working aged 81 covering the US invasion of Panama in 1989.

    Hi, we just started a new blog on tango history…each day we post an event that
    happened that day in tango history…it can be the birth of a famous singer,
    composer of poet, the debut of a film or the recording of a famous tango song…

    Hi Oscar and Maria

    I don’t know if this is the sort of thing you’re looking for, but last year I wrote a blog on tango (“The Devil’s Dance” which you can see on the link below. This was in response to a chapter in my novel dealing with a ballroom dancing lesson involving tango.

    There is a link to a YouTube clip with the Pina Bausch Dance Theatre performing Bandoneon.

    All best!
