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

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.

By A Customer on October 25, 2001
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.

Pretty good but the prose much different than out of Africa.
