I only recently heard of Oriana Fallaci, which seems to be a massive misfortune on my part. I didn’t know anything about her until her death this past September. Another obituary I was reading in an old copy of the Economist  provoked some interest such that now I’m going to have to read one of her books. I’m going to start with her last one, The Force of Reason, though I’ll read the few stories of hers that I can find online, currently just through Wikipedia.
 The Economist seems to now offer the same sort of service as Salon, where you watch an ad to get access to their content, so the link should be accessible.
