A Man is a novel written by Oriana Fallaci chronicling her relationship with the attempted assassin of Greek dictator George Papadopoulos.
The Killing of Sir David Amess has shocked the country. But news of the MP's death has perhaps been felt most keenly in his Essex constituency, where he was known to and beloved by many. A Day after he was attacked while serving The Public , as he had done for almost 40 Years , The Local community tries to make sense of What Happened .
As detectives attempt to piece together possible motives for his fatal stabbing, a thick gathering of police and global media has descended upon the usually quiet Essex town.
Resident Audrey Martin remembered her MP as " an absolute gentleman" who " dedicated his whole life to his constituents here".
She told The Bbc how Sir David had " taken time out" to speak to her when she first moved to the area from Scotland.
" He just had this aura about him. "
Abigail Mkhize held back tears as she recalled how Sir David had helped her with her Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
" He Said , 'This is not right, you've been here for so long and you don't deserve this - I will sort it out' and he did. "
Ms Mkhize has lived in Southend for 20 years and said she " always felt comfortable" knowing Sir David Was around to help.
A steady trickle of locals have been slowly edging to The Cordon tape to lay flowers and stand for a moment, remembering their MP.
Residents said they were touched that Mr Johnson had paid a visit so soon and felt he seemed clearly affected by what had happened.
Those Who Knew Sir David have remembered him as " universally liked" regardless of their politics.
" What he was was a thoroughly decent man: he believed in right and wrong. He was always a positive person, always had a smile on his face, " said Councillor Tony Cox , of Southend Borough Council.
Constituent Lorraine Migliorini highlighted Sir David's work for children and Young People with special educational needs.
" He was genuinely interested and listened to them which was fantastic, " She Said .
Julie Everitt, a constituent, said she would " always remember him for his genuine smile" and his passion for Animal Rights .
Ms Everitt has co-ordinated a vigil for people to " pay our respects to Sir David and our heartfelt sympathies to his loved ones".
" I wrote to him on several occasions and he would always reply.
" He was a good gentleman, he had a good heart, " She Said .
Some said they were especially shocked to hear police were investigating.
" For it to be classed as a terrorist attack is scary, Very Scary , " said Tara Wilkinson.
" It's just such a small community, to hear this here is just awful. "
A 25-year-old man arrested on suspicion of Sir David's murder remains in custody.
A vigil to mark Sir David's life will take place in Leigh on Sea at 19:00 BST.
