Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This audio production is aptly named as it contains a gourmet selection of delicious treats for the listener. This is a nice introduction for those familiar with Isak Dinesen's work (yes, there probably are some) and those who want to revisit and go beyond her best-known work, Out of Africa, read superbly here by Julie Harris. Dinesen was the pen name of Danish Countess Karen Blixen, who spent part of her life on a coffee plantation near Nairobi, Kenya. While Dinesen's Africa has changed much in the time since she wrote, her insights are surprisingly timely, and her love of the land and struggles to make a living from it are timeless and ring true for anyone who lives on the land. Babette's Feast, read by Colleen Dewhurst, poses the question of what role art, and indeed pleasure, has in our lives and how an artist is defined. Less well known are "The King's Letter" and "The Wine of the Tetrarch," two stories read by the author. While it is somewhat difficult to follow these twoone has to listen quite carefullyit is enlightening to hear Dinesen's own voice. Lucifer's Child is a one-woman play based on Dinesen's life. Harris offers a compelling audio performance, and one cannot help but see Dinesen before one's eyes. This is a nicely done production, presenting a showcase of Dinesen's work and enticing listeners to explore more, as well as satisfying their hunger for good stories. A feast for the ears, indeed. Recommended for all libraries.Nancy Paul, Brandon P.L., Wis.
