Description:

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This collection of Dinesen's letters, primarily written to members of her family, cover the 17 years she spent on her coffee plantation in Kenya. While her famous memoir of her African experience--Out of Africa--was written ten years after she left Africa and spoke specifically to the African experience, these letters address the daily immediacy of that period in her life; they also address more specifically the one person she did not mention--the young, inexperienced Isak Dinesen.

Synopsis: "Here is a rich new biographical perspective on the brilliant storyteller whose sophisticated romantic fiction . . . made her an international success and perpetual candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature. . . . [These letters] contain the raw material that was later transformed into her classic memoir Out of Africa (1937). They also reveal her as a highly intelligent and sensitive analyst of a strange new world."—Bruce Allen, Christian Science Monitor

"Letters from Africa is literary gold, 24 karat."—Alden Whitman, Boston Globe

Language Notes: Text: English, Danish (translation)
