The 12 tales in this volume represent the last things that Dinesen wrote prior to her death in 1962. The first seven stories are from an unfinished novel, ALBONDOCANI, which occupied the author for many years. These are followed by two new Gothic tales and--of note to those who enjoyed WINTER'S TALES--three new Winter's Tales, each delivered in the fluid, magnetic style that continually draws us to her work.

"The dozen stories in this...collection may be the literary testament of one of the most skilled but least prolific writers of the twentieth century.... The characters are large, heroic figures and they are brought to earth with a resounding crash. Such men and women are rare in contemporary fiction: the art to make them live vitally...as Dinesen does...is rarer still." -- Time
"A writer with a powerful imagination and a shrewd intelligence."
-- The New York Times Book Review
