Travels with Myself and Another: Five Journeys from Hell
Travels with Myself and Another: Five Journeys from Hell by Martha Gellhorn (Eland Publishing, 2002)

Travel

American novelist, travel writer and journalist Martha Gellhorn starts by saying: “This is not a proper travel book”, rather it is an account of her “best horror journeys... recollected with tenderness now they are past.”. These tales are of their time, starting in 1941, with a precarious trip to the front line of the Sino-Japanese war to meet Chiang Kai-shek. Laced with delicious black humour, these tales could put you off traveling forever; or you may find yourself ascribing to Martha’s philosophy that amateur travellers are a “pretty tough breed”, who no matter how horrendous the current journey, never give up hope that the next will be better.
