Isak Dinesen's Letters From Africa
Letters from Africa: 1914-1931
Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1981
First edition thus, first printing.
A fascinatingly personal account of the 17 years spent in Africa from the young Karen Blixen, revealed in letters to her family.
Showing a more vulnerable picture than the lyrical portrait of Out of Africa, we see the struggle of farm failure, her divorce and the tragic death of her lover in a plane accident, among many more beautiful moments.
