From the Back Cover:

Hauntingly evoked and sensuously realized, the five stories and novella collected here have the hold of 'fairy stories read in childhood...of dreams...and of our life as dreams.' (The New York Times).

About the Author:

Isak Dinesen is the pseudonym of Karen Blixen, born in Denmark in 1885. After her marriage in 1914 to Baren Bror Blixen, she and her husband lived in British East Africa, where they owned a coffee plantation. She divorced from her husband in 1921 but continued to manage the plantation for another ten years, until the collapse of the coffee market forced her to sell the property and return to Denmark in 1931. There she began to write in English under the nom de plume Isak Dinesen. Her first book, and literary success, was Seven Gothic Tales. It was followed by Out of AfricaThe Angelic Avengers (written under the pseudonym Pierre Andrézel), Winter's TalesLast TalesAnecdotes of DestinyShadows on the Grass, and Ehrengard. She died in 1962.
