About this title


A portrait of the romance and realities of colonial life in Kenya, this memoir offers an insider's perspective on colonial and modern Africa

From Publishers Weekly:

Sparked by the popularity of the screen version of Dinesen's Out of Africa, current interest in Kenya may extend to the reminiscences of Huxley, author of The Flame Trees of Thika and other books on East Africa. These recollections of people and places in colonial Kenya, between the start of war in 1933, when Huxley returned from England to write a biography of Lord Delamere, take in her acquaintance with Beryl Markham and with the flashily dressed Johnston (later Jomo) Kenyattawho, "in his loud checked trousers and a belted jacket, carried a walking stick with an amber-coloured stone at its tip" and sat next to her at the London School of Economicsand culminate in the later experiences of her mother Nellie Grant and other characters familiar to viewers of the television series based on Huxley's earlier books.
