About Oriana Fallaci and her  book “Letter to a Child Never Born”:
The book 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 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.

Oriana Fallaci was an Italian journalist, author, and political interviewer. She  became famous all over the world for her coverage of war and revolution, and her interviews with many world leaders during the 1960s, 1970 and 1980s.

In the early 70s she also interviewed  Alexandros Panagoulis (who she had a relationship with),who was  heavily tortured and imprisoned for his assassination attempt on dictator and ex-Colonel  Georgios Papadopoulos.
Panagoulis died in 1976 under controversial circumstances, in a road accident. Ariana  Fallaci maintained that Panagoulis was assassinated by remnants of the Greek Military Junta.
Her book  “Un Uomo” (“A Man”) was inspired by his life.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
