Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Here is a rich new biographical perspective on the brilliant storyteller whose sophisticated romantic fiction . . . made her an international success and perpetual candidate for the Nobel Prize for Literature. . . . [These letters] contain the raw material that was later transformed into her classic memoir Out of Africa (1937). They also reveal her as a highly intelligent and sensitive analyst of a strange new world."—Bruce Allen, Christian Science Monitor

"Letters from Africa is literary gold, 24 karat."—Alden Whitman, Boston Globe
