Waiting for Robert Capa

About the Book

Waiting for Robert Capa

Susana Fortes offers a gorgeously written, ENGLISH PATIENT-style novel about the real-life romance between two photojournalists furiously in love: Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. During the Spanish Civil War, Capa and Taro risked everything documenting Francisco Franco’s Fascist uprising --- even as they risked everything for love. The two artists’ passion stands out in sharp relief against the terrifying realities of war in this internationally acclaimed novel. With a film adaptation already underway from producer Michael Mann (Public EnemiesThe InsiderManhunterCollateral), Fortes’ WAITING FOR ROBERT CAPA is a tale that will touch millions of hearts, mixing the poignancy of a timeless love story with the immediacy of a vivid snapshot from a bygone era.
