Editorial Reviews

Bruce Allen
"Here's a richly biographical perspective on the brilliant storyteller whose sophisticated romantic fiction...made her an international success in a perpetual candidate for the Nobel Prize for literature....(These letters) contain the raw material that was later transformed into a classic memoir 'Out of Africa' (1937). They also reveal her as a highly intelligent and sensitative analyst of a strange new world." -- Christian Science Monitor
