Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Format: Paperback
More fictional than Out of Africa, more along the lines of Babette's Feast. Stories are set throughout Europe, sometimes in locales only hinted at through the character's names. Dinesen reminds me of the sudden twists in Borges or Edith Wharton's short stories. 340 pages, 12 stories.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Nowhere on May 28, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Old-fashioned, elegant entertainment and first-rate literature in the bargain. These stories have the magic of fairytales (for grown-ups) and the wisdom of great art.
