Description

With exceptional grace, Judith Thurman's classic work explores Isak Dinesen's life - her privileged but unhappy childhood in Denmark, her marriage to Baron Blixen and their immigration to Africa on the eve of World War I, and her passionate affair with Denys Finch Hatton. Until the appearance of this book, the life and art of Dinesen have been - as Dinesen herself wrote of two lovers in a tale - "a pair of locked caskets, each containing the key to the other." Judith Thurman has provided the master key to them both.
